Any comments or ideas are also appreciated:
Konnos Bay beach is also great. Though it is hard to get to.
There are official campings in Cyprus. And definetely there are places where capming is prohibited. Please note, that open fire is strictly prohibited everywhere!
But gas is quite Ok. It is possible to buy gas in some supermarkets. For example, AlpaMega in Larnaca.
What about campsites in Cyprus? To be true, I prefer to spend a night in my tent without any campings - just in a wild place.
Ayia Napa beaches are much better that in Larnaca (but the hotels are cheaper in Larnaca). + Adventure park in the center of Ayia Napa. + Aquapark near Ayia Napa.
All the nature beauty is in the mountains, so you'll have to drive a lot, - nor matter where you stay on the coast.
If you plan to drive aroud many dirrefent attractions in the island, than Limassol is better.
As for Larnaca, I would skip it, as the beaches are very bad there.
Larnaca vs. Limassol vs. Ayia Napa
What is best for sightseeing and for children (zoo, aqua parks and so on) ?
Cyprus is definitely more interesting. Also it is cheaper than Rhodes.
