The Heart of Larnaca’s Beach Life

Phinikoudes is a Greek word that means “little palms”, referring to the trees that were planted along the beachfront in 1922. The beach stretches for 500 metres and has fine grey sand that varies in width from 30 to 100 metres. It is surrounded by a lively promenade that offers a variety of cafes, bars, restaurants and hotels. You can also find many mini markets near the beach, where you can buy snacks, drinks and souvenirs. The shopping and business district of the city is just a short walk away from the promenade. The main street, Athenon Avenue, is lined with palm trees, green spaces and colourful flowers that create a beautiful contrast with the blue sea.

Agios Lazaros Church

A Byzantine Treasure in Larnaca

Agios Lazaros Church is a stunning stone church that dates back to the early 10th century and is one of the most important Byzantine monuments of Cyprus. It was built by Byzantine Emperor Leo VI as a gift for the relocation of the Saint’s relic to Constantinople.
The church stands over the tomb of Agios Lazaros, the friend of Jesus Christ who was resurrected and came to ancient Kition in 33 AD. He became the first Bishop and Patron Saint of the city. You can see his tomb and other ancient tombs inside the church crypt. The church has three impressive domes and a bell tower that were destroyed when the Ottomans converted it into a mosque. The church has preserved its byzantine icons and its baroque woodcarving of the gold-covered iconostasis that were completed in 1782.

Larnaca Marina

Phase 1

Covers all the essential works to prepare the project site. The creation of a new road that links Athenon Street with Ammohostou Road, the enlargement of the existing Marina to host 650 yachts from 5 to 150 meters long, and the groundwork for the port extension and the new 500 sqm passenger terminal for large cruise ships.

Larnaca Marina

Phase 2

Covers the building of several Residential units in the Marina area, as well as a Traditional Agora where local products will be offered in a cozy setting.

Phase 3

In the final phase, which is expected to happen before year 10 of this project, new 45 Luxury Villas will be built on the new breakwater, each with their own private berth.

On the same breakwater, a state of the art luxury residential lighthouse will be erected, which will offer 360 degrees view from all of the apartments.
