Salt Lake Larnaca

The salt lake, located west of Larnaca, Cyprus, is a Natura 2000 site, a Ramsar site, and a special protected area under the Barcelona convention. It is considered one of the most important wetlands in Cyprus, covering an area of 2.2 square kilometres. The salt lake was a source of commerce from ancient times. In a trade that was worth many thousands of pounds every year, salt was exported from Larnaca as far as Venice. After the hot summer months, the salt lake is typically completely dry but it doesn’t take a great deal of rain for it to become a lake once again – albeit a shallow one! 
While the salt is no longer used commercially, the lake continues to play an important role as a resting place and winter home for migratory birds.In the winter months between November and March, tens of thousands of colorful, migratory birds visit the Salt Lakes and use it as a temporary home.Of the dozens of species of birds that visit the Salt Lakes during their migratory pattern, the pink flamingo is by far the most common.
