Need help on choose beach and transportation


I will go to Cyprus on next week with my son, he is 7 years old.

Our flight will arrive at Larnaka airport, I checked lots of reviews and found the best beach not in there, seems should be Ayia Napa, is that true? My questions are:

1. Like me, because of my son, shall I need go to Ayia Napa directly from Larnaka airport? How can I go there if I am not going to rent a car?

2. If I just want to have a relax holiday, Larnaka is a good choice or not? Which hotel is most convenience to go to the beach?

I really have no idea about this place, anyway, thank you so much for all your help!! :)

Yes, best beaches are in the East of the island. Ayia Napa, Protaras and Pernera.

The drive from Larnaca in a car is very, very simply to all 3 of those resorts, it's all 2 lane motorway and very straightforward. Here is a driving map - http://goo.gl/maps/UtbzD it's 40 mins to Ayia Napa from the airport

There are some good family hotels in all 3 resorts. Have a look at the reviews and look at the costs for your dates - tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotels-g190372-Cyprus-Hote…

Hi, there are some good beaches in Larnaca I love Pyla Beach in front of the Golden Bay hotel in the tourist area ,there are several places to stay either on Larnaca prom the beach is just across the road or nearby a street or two back. Mckenzie beach up further from the town is lively. Larnaca is my favorite in cyprus it is laid back for a town but there is plenty going on.here is a link to the taxi transfer I use and it is so easy to get from town to town in Larnaca by bus all the inter-city buses stop on Larnaca prom.Julie
