One of the most common tourist stops in Cyprus, Larnaca is a bustling city. Here are some tips for navigating the area’s variety of transportation options.
Taxi and Car Rentals
Some travelers choose to rent a car in Larnaca, which is less expensive than in Paphos or other places in Cyprus.
Others prefer to take a taxi. There are no trains on Cyprus, so service taxis are quite popular. It is probably the best value on the island, although not necessarily the cheapest.
There is daily, punctual bus service in Larnaca and surrounding areas, even during the weekends. The schedule changes for winter, so it is advisable to have a look ahead of time for the latest updates.
There are only two international airports in Cyprus: Larnaca and the newer Paphos.
Immigration formalities at the Larnaca Airport are normally fairly quick, especially for EU citizens.
If you are making your own way onward, there is very limited bus service to and from the airport, although there are always taxis waiting at the rank, which is just outside the door on the right. If you have to wait for a bus or a pick-up, stop just behind the taxi rank to visit a small cafe used by the drivers. There you can get proper coffee that is far cheaper than in the terminal.
The farthest gate is only about a minute’s walk from the cafe area, so there is no need to get to the gate too early.
