The Oroklini Lake is located north of the town of Larnaca, at a distance of about 9 kilometres. The lake forms a rich wetland and a shelter for over 190 types of migrating birds, out of which 30 nest there.

In the past the lake had been downgraded significantly and faced threats until the effective rescue which began in 2012 with the three year project called LIFE Oroklini.

The particular lake stands out due to the natural beauty and the types of birds which are located there, making the Oroklini Lake an excellent area for relaxing.

Near the lake there are observatories and information with many details. Also the Birdlife Organisation in Cyprus organises group excursions, including the Oroklini Lake.
