    Bus from Larnaca to Lefkara

    There are not too many buses a day linking Larnaca to Lefkara. Usually, but not always, you have to change for another bus at Kofinou.
    Bus 408 travels from Larnaca to Kofinou. Then, you have to change to the bus 405, that goes to Vavatsinia, and get off at Pano Lefkara.
    I took the bus 408 in Larnaca at 12:05, but I didn't have to change for another bus at Kofinou, as scheduled by the timetable.The driver informed me she was also going to Vavatsinia. I advise you to check always with the driver.
    Returning back, I had to move, at Kofinou Station, to the bus 408. Fortunatelly I was very lucky waiting only 10 minutes. The bus left exactly at 16:30.

    Intercity buses link the cities in Cyprus. There are several buses a day from Limassol to Pafos, but you have to change at Limassol. You have to travel from Larnaca to Limassol and then change to another bus to travel from Limassol to Pafos. You can not buy a direct ticket.

    One way
    4 + 4 = 8 EUR

    Larnaca Airport.

    Larnaca Airport, Cyprus.
    2 more images

    With Nicosia airport in the Green line area since the Turkish invasion of 1974, there are now only two international airports in Cyprus - Larnaca and the newer Paphos. I always fly to Larnaca.

    It is not a huge place, although there is currently building work going on, although I'm not sure if they are merely extending the runway or building a new terminal.

    On arrival, there are a couple of money exchanges in the baggage reclaim area, although I suggest you only change the minimum necessary as the rates are better here. If you are a smoker, there is a small smoking area just beside the exchange places.

    Immigration formalities are normally fairly quick, especially for EU citizens.

    If you are making your own way onward, there is only a very limited bus service (recently started) to and from the airport, although there are always numerous taxis at the rank which is just outside the door on the right. Here's a tip for you if you have to wait a while for a bus or a pick-up. Just behind the taxi rank is a small cafe used by the drivers where you can get proper coffee far cheaper than in the terminal.

    If you are leaving, the departures area is currently undergoing work. It has all the normal duty free section and a decent sized cafe / bar area. You should be aware that the furthest gate is only about a minutes walk from the cafe area, so no need to get to the gate too early.

    The website attached gives comprehensive details.

    Larnaca has the main airport in Cyprus - all the big airlines fly here. It's very close to the city - annoyingly close even. But this does mean you can get to and from the city centre pretty quickly, although the island is pretty small and you can get to most places direct from the airport. In fact the airport shuttle will take you to Nicosia. If you want to go to Larnaca you'll probably need a taxi. These cost only about 10 euros, but if you get a hotel in the popular "Dekalia" are of the city, it's much further and will cost you around 30 euros.

    Service Taxi

    by antistar Written Sep 16, 2012

    There are no trains on Cyprus and a popular way to get around quickly is by service taxi. Just turn up at the office in town, wait until a service taxi is going your way, and off you go. It's probably the best value on the island, although not necessarily the cheapest. The service taxis don't typically drive around picking people up, so they are pretty quick. If you are coming back, just remember where they will come back to get you from. I was lucky - the driver was looking out for me when I stood in the wrong spot in Nicosia.

    Shuttle Buses To and From Larnaca

    by greekcypriot Updated Apr 4, 2011

    5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The New Larnaca Airport.

    You can get to the city of Larnaca with bus #22 and #23 and the bus stop is outside on the left hand side of the entrance as you leave the main building.

    If you don't wish to wait for the bus, just go to the other side on the right where you can find the taxis. It will probably cost you 15 to 18 euros to get to a city hotel in Larnaca, and 25 to 30 if you want to be driven to Dhekelia road.

    Be sure to ask about the cost before entering the taxi, to avoid possible misunderstandings!!!

    by kotseralex Written Dec 27, 2010

    According to John Taxi (+357 24652465) by private taxi it will cost to you around 55 euro. Much chipper to take bus or for better service to order Service taxi (+357 24661010)shared taxi, provide pick up and drop off service.

    The local bus-system of Larnaca

    by globetrott Updated Nov 25, 2010

    The only local bus that I tried out is the one from the Sveltos hotel to the city of Larnaca, that distance was about 8km and my main complaint is the fact, that at the bus-stop you dont get any information at all about bus-numbers, departure-or arrival-times, first or last bus from this station etc.
    The buses were quite comfortable and the ride to the beach-boulevard was 1 euro one way and I had to wait about 20 min for a bus to arrive.

    Larnaca Airport

    by globetrott Updated Nov 23, 2010

    Larnaca airport is in a distance of ca. 5km from the southern suburbs of Larnaca, it is a modern airport and arriving from the Schengen-area it was no problem at all with customs and other formalities.
    Down in the entrancehall you will find several rental-car-companies and in my opinion it is best to have a reservation for a car before you get there. Some of the counters had been full, like europcar, that I had booked at, others were always empty.
    Be aware that some of them have only a counter at the airport, while their cars are waiting for you in the citycentre.
    In Cyprus you are driving on the LEFT SIDE of the road, but the first kms on the highway from the airport to Larnaca will be a good way to experience the difference to driving on the other side of the street.

    I rented a car in Larnaca
    obviously its much cheaper to rent here than in Paphos and in other places of Cyprus. In the cheapest cathegory I payed a total of 174 euros for 7 days, unlimited milage and all insurances without a single cent to be payed by myself in case of an accident.
    I booked my car with Europcar in advance through my travelagent in Vienna.

    Coming from Kyrenia to Larnaca

    by greekcypriot Written May 18, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If coming from Kyrenia, you should better come to Nicosia, pass the borders and then take a taxi (mini bus)that would drive you to Larnaca to Phinikoudes (Palm tree avenue). Out there you find the bus stop that will take you to Agia Napa.
    It does not cost more than 8 euros I think, but I suggest that you spend a couple of days at Agia Napa as it is a place you would love to be. I think it is worth it.

    If you want to go to Agia Napa from Larnaca by Taxi it will cost you about 40 euros (call 99672783 Leon Taxi service) or Xenis Stratis 99531221.
    Both are reliable, and ask for a discount and whoever gives you the best price book it. You can use my name if you wish.
    However, I still believe that you can take the bus from Larnaca and it is just 45 minutes...so why pay more!
    In my Larnaca tips you will find much informtion on (Transportation with phone numbers and sites) Have a look and if you need more help just get in touch.

    Travel Express or simply Travel X is an intercity mini bus/taxi which is very convenient and more economical compared to a private hire taxicab.

    Larnaca to Nicosia
    Nicosia to Paphos
    Paphos to Limassol
    Limassol to Nicosia
    and other areas
    You may check the schedule and more detailed information on their website I provided below. In the meantime, I am giving you the address and working hours in Larnaca as follows:

    Corner of Kilkis & Kitiou (Main Office) Tel 24 621100 Mon-Fri 07:30 - 19:00 07:30 - 17:00
    Corner of Papakyriakou and Markelou Tel 24 661070 Saturday 05:30 - 19:00 05:30 - 17:00

    bus or car?

    by uglyscot Written Jun 11, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As the hotel was some distace from Larnaka we had to find a way to travel. The conference had a mini-bus but we preferred to be independent.
    A bus could be found at the entrance to the hotel every half hour. It cost 70cents each way, and was our preferred way of moving.
    If we were in town but overcome by the heat, we'd take a taxi for 5 cyp pounds.
    When a longer excursion was planned we rented a car, but discovered the advertisements in the hotel were not strictly accurate. To rent for two days was 20 Cyp pounds, but on top of that was VAT and insurance, so all in all it was 100 pounds.
