The Dog Beach is a long sandy beach located to the South of Larnaca International Airport. There's a pumping station for the nearby Water Treatment plant on the beach so, the spot could also be referred to as 'Desalination plant'.
The beach is a popular kitsurfing spot for all skill levels. The spot works well with the Eastern winds during the winter season.
Eastern and North-west winds are dominant from November till April. Average strength is 12-16 knots (6-8 m/s). The best wind directions are East and South-east (cross-onshore).
West and South-west (offshore) winds are dominant during summer time.
The sea is mostly flat with little chop.
How to get there
At the Airport roundabout turn to Kiti/Meneou and then drive by the Meneou-Pervolia road. At a T-junction between two salt lakes turn to the left. In 1-2 km there'll be the pumping station on the beach. The passage to the beach is in about 10 m down the road.
