It’s an unseasonably warm winter in Larnaka as autumn forgot to show up and the weather feels more like spring! And whilst the beaches start to say goodbye to their last visitors, the spirit of Christmas is very much present in the region, with lots of great seasonal events planned. For those who are taking advantage of the comfortable temperatures and exploring on foot, a walk along the salt lake path to see the flamingos is one of the top visitor activities at this time of year, whilst our new directory of authentic Cyprus experiences is a great starting point for discovering and taking part in the customs of the region first-hand!
