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.

  • Go in Nov to May to see the pink flamingos. We went in Oct, and the lake was dry. However, it is worth the visit just to tick it off the list.. The views are great!!!

  • Definitely a must see in spring or winter when swans are searching for their preferable food. In summer it is dry.

  • My favorite place in Larnaka. In October is still dry, fascinating view on mountains.
