Salt Lake - Larnaca


It constitutes a system of salt lakes, adjacent to Larnaca and its airport. Together they have a surface area of about 5 square km. Until the early 80s, every summer, when the main lake was completely dry, it was mined for salt, which was carried on donkeys for processing.

The lake is inhabited by a different krill than the one in Akrotiri salt lake. It has different salinity as it doesnot receive water from rivers. A great birdwatching spot. Thousands of flamingos and a plethora of other bird species visit it to escape the cold and spend the winter here. 

The birdwatchers tower at the nearby sewage plant offers excellent year round birdwatching possibilities. As in the case of the Akrotiri salt lake, it is one of the wetlands under the Ramsar Convention (www.ramsar.org). There is a picnic area in the adjacent forest and the presence of the nearby Hala Sultan Mosque gives the lake an arabic, oasis like aura.
