Larnaca beaches are characterised by darker sand and relatively calm waters (there are a few dangerous spots that should be avoided just west of the airport). East of the airport the beaches are quite organised, a number having been awarded Blue flags and have wavebreakers. To the west the beaches are less organised.
Larnaca is characterised by the presence of a system of salt lakes in the west and the swamp like Voroklini lake in the east. They usually dry out in summer, but otherwise they can be excellent for birdwatching.
