Lap up the sunshine with a driving holiday in Cyprus and enjoy a fair fuel policy too.
Larnaca is undoubtedly one of the most popular places tourists will visit during their trip to Cyprus. Flights into Larnaca Airport are plentiful and when you land, it's only a 4km drive away from the city so you can be sunbathing on the beach in no time. This makes Larnaca Airport the most popular gateway for tourists arriving into Cyprus.
With an attractive seafront, lovely beaches in close proximity and plenty of interesting sights located within the city limits, it's a great base from which to explore the island and car hire is an easy and affordable way to get around.
Visit Phinikoudes Beach on the seafront of Larnaca and embark on a boat trip from the marina. You can visit the Church of Saint Lazarus whilst you're here too. Other popular beaches include Makenzie Beach only a 10 minute drive away. Faros Beach is popular with those who enjoy a bit of tranquillity whilst they sunbathe.
Scuba diving is top on the list for many when they visit Larnaca so be sure to explore the amazing underwater worlds in the crystal clear sea. There are even specific shipwreck dives available such as Wreck of the Zenobia.
Nicosia is a short 40km drive and as the capital city of Cyprus, it is definitely a city worth a visit. There are plenty of museums to keep you entertained but bear in mind that a lot of attractions close early so be sure to get an early start.
Collect a hire car and around 60km away you will find the second largest city of Limassol, where two major Cypriot festivals are held. Kolossi Castle is also a favourite tourist attraction here if you are visiting outside festival season and it provides a fascinating insight into the history of the city.
Ayia Napa is hugely popular for its gorgeous beaches and exciting nightlife. It has a reputation that tends to appeal mainly to younger travellers so if this isn't suitable, why not consider Protaras instead. It's only a 45 minute drive from Larnaca in your car and whilst it doesn't compromise on the lovely beaches it's a popular choice for families and couples and a great base for exploring some of the pretty local villages.
Drive 32km to Choirokoitia, one of the oldest and most fascinating Neolithic sites in Cyprus, dating all the way back to 7,000 BC where you can explore the defensive wall of the settlement in addition to the tombs and circular houses.
The IATA code for Larnaca Airport is LCA.
