Time to return to Larnaka

As the world begins to emerge from lockdown, top resorts are beginning to open for business, anxious to promote their attractions to holidaymakers.

The popular island of Cyprus is beginning to come out of lockdown with the first hotels on the island reopening on Friday, 05 June as flights from abroad begin to arrive on 09 June 2020. 

Larnaka Tourism has launched a new video as the island prepares to welcome tourists back to its shores. The video is entitled ‘It’s time to return’ and is being shared across Larnaka Tourism Board’s social media platforms. 

This video marks the opening of Cyprus to foreign countries and uses Larnaka Tourism Board’s slogan: “They Always Come Back”. A slogan launched at London’s World Travel Market in 2016 to highlight Larnaka’s high percentage of repeat visitors.

The Great Flamingo was chosen for the slogan because of the flamingos’ enduring love affair with Larnaka as they visit annually and can be observed at Larnaka Salt Lake and Voroklini Lake between November to April. Over 60 per cent of visitors to Larnaka and its region are repeat visitors, one of the highest amongst seaside regions on the island of Cyprus.

“The high repeat visitors to our shores shaped our slogan and the message on this new video, as we prepare to re-open for tourism. We are certain that it is the strength of our repeater guests which will also result in the visitor numbers we receive during this challenging year” comments Dinos Lefkaritis, Chairman of Larnaka Tourism Board.

The video captures the town and the district of Larnaka, its competitive advantages as well as the special interest forms of tourism including water sports and gastronomy and was made with the support of the Deputy Ministry of Tourism of Cyprus and produced by local company, Content Hub. Larnaka Tourism Board thanks all that contributed including: Windsurf City Cyprus, Kahuna Surfhouse – Kaveh Photography, Larnaka Rural Women’s Association – Marrena Photostory, Alexandros Papandreou, Golden Donkeys FARM, Lush Beach Bar.

The video is on Facebook and on YouTube.
