You know a place is worth visiting when it boasts a legend of it’s own. It’s said that once when Lazarus asked an old woman here for refreshments, she refused and gave the lie of her vines having all dried up. Lazarus cursed her to forevermore suffer dry vines and a salty water. The curse might have actually worked: the water of the lake evaporates in the summer, leaving a salty residue crusting the earth – scientists suspect that the culprit for the salt is seawater that seeps intrhough the porous rock. Though it looks unassuming, the lake is actually a major bird conservatory and migratory stop. It’s truly magnificent in the winter when thousands of pink flamingos flock here to mate. These beautiful and graceful birds are a photographer’s delight. The area surrounding the lake is beautiful, and the Hala Sultan Tekke is right next door. You can troll here for hours.

Nice place to walk around. And if you're lucky you can see flamingos.
If you have a rest from crowded Larnaca city center this is a good place for lake shore walking, where you can meet flamingos
A great place for a quick walk around. You can shoot perspective photos here, fun place for camera lovers.
Best place for a run or a walk in Larnaca city. Quiet and safe.
A nice place for hiking and relax with a nice view. It is likely that in Bird Migration Season, the place is much more impressive.
