Limassol Salt Lake is the largest in Cyprus. Aliki Salt Lake of Limassol is a natural habitat of international importance being the most important birdland in Cyprus and is located in Akrotiri. Aliki, as well as the wider Akrotiri area, is particularly important from an ecological point of view.
It is three times the size of the Larnaka salt lakes making it greater in length and the largest of the eastern Mediterranean. Important is the fact that the area is visiting us for a rest during the autumn migration of about half of the African population Demoiselle crane (Anthropoides Virgo) coming between August and early September.
