“Here you will find some traditional restaurants but also some very modern places to eat. You may have your coffee at Cafe Nero( self service) and enjoy it in front of the beach. We really enjoy that place when we are there. There is also a small playground for the kids. ”

Is a Muslim mosque on the west bank of Larnaca Salt Lake, in Larnaca, Hala Sultan Tekke complex is composed of a mosque, mausoleum, minaret, cemetery, and living quarters for men and women. The term tekke (convent) applies to a building designed specifically for gatherings of a Sufi brotherhood, or tariqa, and may have referred to an earlier feature of the location. The present-day complex, open to all and not belonging to a single religious movement, lies in a serene setting on the shores of the Larnaca Salt Lake, which appears to be an important site also in prehistory. Hala Sultan Tekke is a listed Ancient Monument.”
