Limassol

Limassol, Cyprus

If discovering quiet beaches, exploring quaint villages, and being part of the local crowd is what you look for in a holiday then Limassol is the place for you. The resort offers lots in the way of shopping, from high street shops to little shops on the cobbled streets.

Limassol

Approximately 60 minutes from Paphos airport, Limassol has a lot to offer in the form of local history and culture. Eat, drink and be merry is the motto for this area, especially in September when the locals celebrate the festival of wine. For those who enjoy the clink of a cash till then a visit to Makarios Avenue is a must, or if you want to escape the familiarity of high street shops, try the cobbled streets that lay behind the seafront. A good destination for couples and families.

The beach is still popular enough to have a couple of restaurants and a regular bus service from Limassol. Alternatively around 15 mins drive south of Limassol is the famous Lady's Mile Beach, 7km of flat sand which is fronted by the sea and backed by the Akrotiri salt lake. The water here is shallow and clear, and is also a popular spot for windsurfing.
