Larnaca Market and Camel Park Tour
Duration: Half Day
If you are looking for a fun-filled tour that the whole family will enjoy during your holiday in Cyprus, this trip to Larnaca Market and Camel Park is a must. Spend time shopping for gifts and souvenirs in this bustling town before enjoying a camel ride in beautiful surroundings.
Situated on the southern coast of Cyprus, Larnaca is the third largest town on the island. Built on the remains of the Ancient City of Kition, it is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. Blessed with golden sandy beaches and a rich archeological heritage, this popular tourist resort is also the perfect base from which to explore the history and beauty of Cyprus.
Aside from being a bustling port city and the location of the island’s main international airport, many people visit Larnaca to relax on its beaches, stroll along the palm-lined harbour promenade and enjoy the modern amenities. A vast selection of restaurants, tavernas and cafés line the streets and seafront, and a wide range of shops, malls, boutiques and markets sell the latest electrical goods and designer fashions.
One of the best places for shopping is the colourful Larnaca Market, one of the largest outdoor markets in Cyprus. Spend the morning browsing the stalls, which sell everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to jewellery, leather, clothes and handmade lace, wood and pottery crafts. It’s a great place to find gifts and souvenirs and you can pick up some excellent bargains to take back home with you. Shopping in Larnaca is an experience not to be missed.
In the afternoon you will be taken to the largest Camel Park in Cyprus, located only 15 minutes from Larnaca. Adults can sit back and relax in the beautiful surroundings whilst the children play in the play area, which has a bouncy castle, swings, sitting tea cups and much more. The little ones will also love Noah’s Ark, where they can see and touch deer, goats, ostriches, ponies, horses, donkeys and many other animals. There is also a swimming pool, which offers a welcome escape from the summer heat. Adults can enjoy a cocktail at the pool bar whilst the children swim and have fun.
The biggest attraction in the park, however, is the camels, which visitors can feed and ride. Take a trip round the park’s scenic grounds or enjoy an exhilarating safari ride through the countryside from a different perspective. This exciting adventure is a wonderful experience for both adults and children.
