Limassol, Cyprus


Warm Cypriot hospitality and brilliant beaches

Situated on the southern coast of Cyprus, Limassol is the second largest town on the island. It has an abundance of historical locations nearby as well as fabulous beaches including the seven mile long seafront plus there’s a bustling harbour where you can relax and watch the luxury yachts pass by. The town’s long promenade links the beaches and is a particularly pleasant place to enjoy a leisurely bike ride.

Attractions in Limassol include the main square in the old town which is furnished with restaurants, the Cathedral which has a beautiful Baroque façade and Limassol Castle which was built by the Byzantines around 1000 AD.

Sightseers will also find a trip to the ancient Kourion site very memorable. There’s an amazing amphitheatre, Roman house with baths and stunning mosaics, a reconstructed Roman theatre and more. The ruins are beautifully preserved and the coastal backdrop just adds to the magic of this special place.

When it comes to dining there are a multitude of options ranging from the popular fast food establishments to family run tavernas and high class luxury restaurants. Make sure you take the time to sample some of the local Cypriot dishes washed down with the excellent local wines. There are also plenty of shopping opportunities and night life.

For a fun day out, try the Fasouri Watermania Water Park – the biggest water park in Cyprus. There are exhilarating slides, a wave pool, splash pads, water playgrounds, a lazy river, a food court and plenty of parking. It makes for a great day out for all the family.
