Larnaca municipality parking clampdown

Larnaca municipality has announced the official end of any free parking along the Phinikoudes promenade, and will be clamping down on illegal parking along the strip, as well as along the new Piale Pasha coastal road.

Although Phinikoudes had originally been a no-stopping/parking zone, there was a grace period of free parking from 2012 whilst a municipality multi-storey parking lot behind Laiki Yitonia was being constructed. This grace period ended with the completion of the multi-storey in July 2014, with some lay-by spaces remaining as free parking at certain hours of the day, which have now also officially come to an end.

The municipality has published a map showing every legal parking space offered in the proximity of the town centre – which total over 1000 spaces – comprised of various municipal and private multi-storeys, the old market parking and other private lots, with varying fees, as well as metered parking. There is also free parking available in the plot adjacent to the Zenon bus depot, which is located opposite the social security and employment offices.

Members of the public are requested to adhere to the laws of legal parking or face the consequences, which include fines reaching €85, and for which the municipality claims it will start to enforce more vigilantly following a further period of leniency over the Easter holidays.

Experience Cyprus: Ayioi Saranta

Taking the loose surface road to the area of Ayioi Saranta or one of the nature trails in Protaras, the visitor comes across the picturesque chapel of Ayioi Saranta.
 Its existence is betrayed by the stone-built canopy on the wild rocks. The chapel is set in an intact cave. 
The forty stalactites of the cave are what encouraged a devout christian to turn it into a place of pilgrimage. 
The visitor apart from the pilgrimage will enjoy the wonderful scenery that surrounds the chapel.
