Paralimni, The traditional town of Paralimni is the largest town in
the free Famagusta district, located approximately 40
minutes drive from Larnaca airport. Its town square has
many good shops (including Marks & Spencer),
restaurants, cafes, bars and three churches, the oldest
of which houses a museum. Just beyond the square are
beautiful gardens and fountains with an open air
theatre. Retaining much of its old charm with local crafts,
souvenir shops and picturesque narrow streets, it is not
unusual to come across fishermen quietly mending their
nets in the shade of the vine-covered courtyards. A
regular bus service runs along the coast from Paralimni
to Protaras and then on to Ayia Napa.
