Venetian Towers (Eastern) - The network of Venetian watchtowers was constructed over 500 years ago and acted as an early warning system against naval attacks.

Camel & Donkey Route – With suggested visits to Camel Park Mazotos and the Golden Donkeys multi-site farm in Skarinou, this 50 km route introduces cyclists to the island’s furry friends and offers a unique insight on how locals would move around the island in olden days.
Wheat & Bread Route – This 60 km route showcases the region’s long history of traditional bread-making as it passes through golden wheat fields and takes in a beautifully-restored flour mill, which now serves as a time capsule of Athienou town’s bread-making tradition.
Larnaka Birdwatching Route – This 11 km route is recommended between November and April and offers the opportunity to visit Voroklini Lake and Larnaka Salt Lake to observe the majestic, migrating bird species, as well as Larnaka Marina and Larnaka Medieval Castle.
With its varied terrain and pleasant year-round climate Larnaka region is ideally suited for cycling. Exploring on two wheels in the fresh air is not only beneficial for health but is also better for the environment. This promotion of sustainable mobility is one of the aims of the European ‘ΙΝCIRCLE’ Project, with the routes revised within the framework of its activities to address the growing environmental challenges posed by tourism activities.
