Quad Bikes

by justbecands

Hi! Can I just ask if there are places to hire quad bikes in larnaca, ive been searching on the net and cant find anything else other than car hire? Also, how long is the drive on a bike to Aiga Napa? Im also interested in knowing what the people are like there as I will be there on my own most of the time.

Thank you and happy travelling!!

Hi there.
Be careful - check that the operator is licensed before using their Quad bikes.
If you want to get a feel for Cyprus before arriving have a look at the local paper, Cyprus Weekly online.
If you are a lone traveller it's very safe in Larnaca. The people are warm and friendly generally.
Larnaca to Agia Napa by car takes me about half an hour.

Hope this helps. Be safe and enjoy your trip.

Travel Tips for Larnaca

Free Water

by cheekymarieh

When you are in the upstairs restaurant in Larnaca Airport the water from the machine is free. It is drinking water and you can add ice too.

Another airport tip - check out whether the gate you are leaving from is one of the air conditioned ones, if not wait until the last minute to go throgh in summer.

Eski Yerlesi Kalintilari
are the remains of an ancient settlementand you will find it right under one of the buildings next to the Hala Sultan Mosque. I could not find any more informations about these excarvations, but it was interesting to see that the new building was built on top of it and still you can see the remains of the old settlement there as well (see my 4th photo).

Hala! Anybody there?

by Trillian2005

The Hala Sultan Tekke Mosque (also known as the Mosque of Umm Haram) is the most important mosque in Larnaca. It was built (the mosque, not Larnaca) either in 647 C.E. or 649 C.E. The story associated with this mosque goes like this: Umm Haram, the wife of Ubada bin al-Samit, died during a raid on Cyprus organized by Muawiyah. She fell from her mule and died after breaking her neck during the siege of Larnaca. She was buried near the Larnaca Salt Lake and her grave became a sacred shrine. Hala Sultan (a.k.a. Umm Haram) was Prophet Muhammad’s nurse. This mosque named after her is located in a serene and picture perfect setting on the shores of the Larnaca Salt Lake.

According to stories by lost travelers visiting Cyprus in 1683 and 1767, there was a tomb known as the "Old Woman’s Tomb". Both Muslims and Christians considered the tomb as a sacred place and therefore it attracted worshippers from both religions. The tomb was discovered by a dervish called Sheikh Hasan. People hearing the stories started to visit it because legend has it that the tomb's dolmen stones had healing powers, so people touched the stones and they were cured. Happy end!

Hala Sultan is the Turkish version of "Umm Haram". For Muslims, the Tekke is considered one of the most important sites (locations that is, not websites) after the Kaaba in Mecca, Prophet Muhammad’s tomb in Medina, and the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.

the old fortress of Larnaca

by globetrott

the old fortress of Larnaca dates back to the year 1625 and it was built in order to defend Larnaca against the Turish invadors. In later years it also became a prison and an outpost of the german troops in WW I. After that it became the seat of the british Administration and nowadays it is a museum. The fortress is lighted at night, like shown in my last photo.
The museum inside the fort shows some cannons and armoury, local lace-works and also some archeological exhibits of Kition, that is the old name for the city of Larnaca.
