"Voroklini, Cyprus" Voroklini by Aunt_Bertha
Voroklini Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 7 photos
Oroklini is a more modern name for Voroklini and rest assured that both Voroklini and Oroklini are the same village, so there's no need to look for Oroklini when you're in Voroklini and vice versa. The village of (V)Oroklini is located about 15 km north of Larnaca, sliding down, or crawling up a hill that looks like a sleeping elongated cat without ears and tail.
Oroklini is one of the most interesting villages in Cyprus because there's absolutely nothing to see. Old Oroklini is nestled at the cat's back, whereas new boomtown Oroklini with its hotels and vacation homes is sprawling along the seashore. It's only a matter of time when New Oroklini will have spread out all over Cyprus, devouring Old Oroklini. Depending on the year you read this, dear reader, you can rest assured though that Old Oroklini was still in existence at the point of writing this page.
At the time of my visit, in early 2006, however, it was still difficult to distinguish where Old Oroklini with its charming falling-apart villas ends and New Oroklini with its charming villas, unfinished in multiple stages, begins. Things may be clearer in a few years. If they are, I wouldn't know because I haven't been back since.
Whereas Oroklini may be crowded and noisy in the summer, it is a relaxing oasis of peace and quiet, with the distinct absence of tourists in the winter. Most of the restaurants are closed and the shops only open for a few hours per day. So you'll have plenty of time to enjoy the soothing gray weather with occasional gentle gusts of wind caressing the lone traveler and the beach chairs on the beach.
- In a nutshell:The most interesting village in Cyprus.
The first thing that attracted my attention when I, the tired and weary traveler I was after a night without sleep,... more travel advice
