Each and every of these phases covers 4 phases of the project Even if you do not have a yacht, you can be guaranteed that the new Larnaca Marina will be a terrific area for a peaceful stroll to halt for a coffee and gaze out throughout the harbour at the blue Mediterranean.
Though home charges in the new marina and port are probably to be significant, you can uncover a two-bedroom Larnaca condominium for about €135,000. For a 3-bed room, detached household/villa without pool but 5 minutes from the seashore and 15 minutes from Larnaca airport you’ll require to be budgeting from about €250,000.
