Time for some relaxing. Lancara is as easygoing as it gets. Here you’ll find sun and sand, with a fascinating historical twist! This beautiful seaside resort isn’t just beach; and contains the old Church of St Lazarus. In the West, you’ll find a salt lake, where hundreds of flamingos pack during Spring. If you love nature, beaches and architecture, you will be absolutely charmed by Lancara. Don’t miss out on your chance to visit!
The last stop on our tour is all about nature. Cape Greco is a lovely national park, that offers a number of pretty walking trails. Here, you can walk among the gorgeous local flora, all the while soaking in the fresh sea air and scenery.
