An Introduction to Limassol

Limassol, the second largest town in Cyprus, is situated on the south coast and is virtually equidistant from Paphos and Larnaca.  A vibrant, bustling resort with a lot to offer - long stretches of beaches, a multitude of restaurants and bars, great shops and interesting historical/archaeological sites.  Renowned for its carnivals and festivals, it's also the Cyprus Wine Industry centre. Limassol has a strong cultural heritage and its where Richard the Lionheart married Princess Berengaria in 1191.

 

The resort consists of three main areas - all with access to beaches. The main tourist area - Yermasoyia, abounds with all the facilities for a great holiday; beaches, huge selection of restaurants, tavernas, cafes, bars, lively nightlife, shops and banks.  The Amathus area - an ancient site dating back to 1000 BC - lies east of Yermasoyia, is much quieter, and offers a good varied selection of restaurants, tavernas, cafes and a few bars.  To the west of Yermasoyia, is the Old Town (where you'll find out of the way tavernas offering authentic Cypriot dishes and patronised by the locals), the colourful harbour and the bustling main Port of Cyprus.

 

The beaches in Limassol are predominantly dark golden sand and shingle and stretch all along the coastline with a wide range of watersports available, including scuba diving.  Ladies Mile beach is popular with windsurfers for its shallow clear waters.
Beaches: Dhassoudi Tourist Beach, Ladies Mile, Curium Beach, Governer's Beach.

 

There are plenty of facilities within easy reach - Golf, Go-Karting, Horse Riding, Nature Trails, Zoo & Municipal Gardens and interesting cultural sites - The ancient Kourion Amphitheatre, Kolossi (Medieval) Castle, Limassol Castle (incorporating the Medieval Museum).  The Troodos Mountains are very easily accessible from Limassol, as is the pretty hill village of Omodhos and the picturesque mountain resort of Platres.

 

Limassol makes a good centre from which to explore much of Cyprus, including the Ancient City of Curium, the 5th century Baths and the fascinating villages and monasteries of the Troodos mountains.

 

Nightlife is truly varied, to suit all tastes - ranging from trendy rustic restaurants, to traditional tavernas (some with live Greek music & shows), International cuisine including Chinese, Indian, Tex Mex, Steak Houses, Lebanese, and fast food is also readily available. With a great variety of bars and pubs, from the relaxing dimly- lit establishments, to the more lively hotspots and nightclubs to suit all ages.
