Strictly speaking, Larnaca's salt lake consists of four lakes: Aliki, is the biggest, then Orphani, Soros and Spiro. The basin only fills up with water in winter. At that time, it becomes the destination for about 190 bird species that spend the winter here, including swallows, herons, lapwings and hawks. But the flamingos, with a population of up to 20,000, attract the most attention. When you visit, be on the lookout for a very unique specimen. The one and only black flamingo in the world has been sighted at Larnaca's Salt Lake.
