Larnaca Salt Lake - Review
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.

Well it is nice to see the flamingos and seagulls but nothing else to see. You can stop the car take some photos when passing through, it will take minutes then nothing else to do. It is not an attraction it is just a nice view. You can visit it while going to see the the nearby mosque or when going to limassol or lefkara.
This is NOT a destination in its own right. If you are passing by, pop down the road and take a picture of the mosque from across the lake, all very beautiful. Even lovelier when the flamingos are around.
I went with my car all around it, it's clean and well maintained, flamingos are around usually in January, an amazing nature all around.
You'd find this location when you are enroute the Sultan Teke mosque. Please do come down from your car, wave to the flamingoes and taste the salt lake. You'd thank me later.
Of you miss the great mosque you missed nothing... The lake itself is awesome enough and with a kind of luck you can watch flamingos in nature
