Paragraph 1

Larnaca is a city on the southern coast of Cyprus. It has a population of 72,000 (2010) and is the island’s second largest commercial port and an important tourist resort. The island’s largest airport, Larnaca International Airport is located on the outskirts of the city.

To the north of the city lies the island’s former oil refinery, which was reduced to a storage facility after the refinery itself was sold in 2008. The city of Larnaka is well-known for its picturesque seafront which includes rows of palm trees (oi finikoudes, in the Cypriot dialect). Larnaca Marina is one of the four official entry points, by sea, to Cyprus.

Larnaca is a tourist center. In this area, tourism extends far to the east along the coast, with centers such as Ayia Napa, Paralimni and Protaras.
