No studies have been accomplished yet to clarify whether coastal erosion in Cyprus is also attributed to climate change. Increased erosion and sea-level rise could worsen the serious problem that Cyprus faces with sea water penetration to coastal aquifers and their salination. The most vulnerable areas to possible sea-level rise, likely to face inundation risk and greater exposure to storm surges, are the low-lying area of Larnaca and the adjacent salt lake, the Akrotiri peninsula wetland, the Akamas Coastal/Marine Protected area and especially the Lara/Toxeftra Turtle Reserve, Cape Greko marine caves, and Poli Chrysochous coastline (Republic of Cyprus 2006; Parari 2009).
