The beautiful city of Larnaca is found in the southeastern coast of Cyprus, which is the largest Mediterranean island. The area is one huge resort as luxury hotels, apartments and villas cover the coastline on either part of the city. A lot of Cypriots from the nearby capital, Nikosia, own a summer home in the area as the beaches are lovely and the atmosphere is cosmopolitan. In the summer, tourists from all over the world come to Cyprus for the sea, the sun and the vivid nightlife.
Larnaca’s nightlife starts, and often ends, with dinner. There is no such thing as ‘an early dinner’ in Cyprus. As in many touristic places in the Mediterranean, visitors have to adjust to local habits and a lot of people are on the beach or shopping until the sun sets. Many of these people have had their afternoon nap and it is no earlier than 10 o’clock that restaurants really start filing up. There are all kinds of choices in both food and entertainment. Visitors can find restaurants offering Greek style live entertainment (bouzouki music) together with Oriental style Lebanese restaurants where belly dancing is often displayed. Visitors coming from the UK will find excellent restaurants, perhaps more adjusted to their taste, such as Lithos Bar and Restaurant with fabulous food and brilliant daily events. You can of course chose to have a quiet dinner and then continue at a bar or dance club.
Visitors will find a great variety of late night fun in Larnaca. Most places are in the Old Quarter and by the sea. There are classic rock bars , dancing clubs and a lot of European and UK style pubs where you can try a bottle of KEO, Cyprus’s national lager brewed at Larnaca.
