This boulevard got its name from the palm trees that line either side of the street. It runs parallel to the beach in the old township of Larnaca. The tourist beach provides full amenities and conveniences. Outdoor cafes, English-style pubs and restaurants line the avenue and tourists have a choice of sitting at the restaurants and watching the surfs or bathing in the warm Larnaca waters. Halfway along the waterfront is the sculpture of the Classical Greek naval officer Kimon, who died here in a great mêlée with the Persians. Next to the boardwalk is also a huge harbor with berths for several hundred yachts.
