Named after the palm trees that line the most famous area of Larnaca, the Finikoudes promenade is a popular spot for both locals and visitors alike. This 600-metre long stretch of sandy beach has calm, warm and shallow waters, and proximity to the many cafés, bars, restaurants and hotels, make it an ideal family destination.
Finikoudes promenade is flanked by the marina with its pier and fishing harbour on the one end, and a second pier and the Medieval Fort at the other.
Facilities on the beach include water sport activities, toilets, showers, changing rooms, sun beds, umbrellas as well as benches and abundant greenery. The town’s main shopping centre runs parallel.
Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach from June – October, 10:30 – 18:00. The beach also offers disabled access, including a special wheelchair at the lifeguard tower to help disabled persons enter the sea with assistance from the lifeguards.
Larnaka sea explorations, including fishing trips, mini cruises and diving, are available from the Larnaka Marina pier, found at the start of Foinikoudes promenade. Access is easy by foot, bike, bus or car, with several municipal and private car parks servicing the general area, and there are many entry points with paths and paving leading to the beach and the establishments lining it.
