An Introduction to Pissouri

Perched on the hillside overlooking the sea, and hills rolling away into the fertile countryside, Pissouri is situated midway between Paphos and Limassol (30km).   A few kilometres west is Aphrodite's Rock (5km), to the east, the shoreline of Limassol and with spectacular views of the Troodos Mountain range to the north - the views are breathtaking! Pissouri is a unique resort, with the colourful village situated on the hills and fringed by the majestic shoreline of Pissouri Bay.

 

Pissouri is a traditional village with its Cypriot character still intact and is a working village of farmers - an area famous for its vineyards.  With its numerous, quaint little churches (there's even one in the Beach valley!) and a good selection of shops, supermarkets, banks and small galleries selling art and handicrafts, which are scattered around the village.  The focal point of the village is the picturesque (pedestrian) village square, with welcoming tavernas and cafe-bars, where in the summer a weekly 'Cyprus Night' is held, offering food, drink, music and Greek dancing.  You'll find a good selection of restaurants, tavernas and cafe-bars offering good quality cuisine.  The Amphitheatre completed in 2000 and seating 800 spectators plays host to a variety of events including traditional folk dancing (local and from abroad) and plays - ranging from Greek tragedies/comedies to Shakespeare. Spectacularly set high up on the edge of the village, with panoramic views of Akrotiri and Limassol, it is well worth a visit.

 

Pissouri Bay (5km/3miles from the village - 25/30min walk) has developed from a jetty and one small taverna into a good collection of tavernas and a few shops hugging the coast, still managing to retain a Cypriot atmosphere. The glorious sand and shingle beach (recently awarded the Blue Flag) with its clear blue waters, sweeps the coastline - 2km in length, it extends from the white cliffs of Cape Aspro to the west and ends at the rocky area of Mavrorotsos at the eastern end, thus creating a wonderful vista of hills and the great expanse of the sea. Watersports are available from the jetty in the summer months.

 

Nightlife in Pissouri is low-key, but with a great variety of restaurants, tavernas and cafe-bars, whether up in the village or down by the bay, the focus is definitely on pleasurable dining in superb surroundings.  For a greater choice of livlier night-time pursuits, Paphos or Limassol are not too far away.

 

Ideal for couples and families.
