Upgrades underway for Larnaca beaches

Upgrades are underway for next summer in Larnaka, according to a press release by the Larnaca Tourism Board.

In particular, the municipalities of Larnaca, Pervolia, Voroklini and Pyla – in cooperation with the LTB – are creating a project to offer citizens and tourists a complete day out at the beach.

“Aside from the ongoing work of ensuring the sands and sea are always kept in their award-winning condition, the upgrades will include children’s playgrounds, outdoor fitness equipment and beach sports courts (tennis and volleyball) added to various organised beaches.

“And with the majority of our most popular beaches also surrounded by food and drink establishments, and featuring water sport services in addition to facilities such as lifeguard, disabled access, restrooms and changing rooms, the new leisure and activity elements will give beachgoers something else to enjoy alongside the favourite pastime of sunbathing and swimming,” says the press release.
