Holidays in Limassol
Gloriously positioned on Akrotiri Bay, Limassol is one of the largest resort areas in Cyprus offering an abundance of activities for couples, families and young people. Boasting a magnificent 15 kilometres of coastline, Limassol has grown rapidly to one of the most popular resorts in Cyprus.
The heart of Limassol is the old town with its winding narrow streets leading to the old fishing harbour. The sightseeing must is the 14th century medieval castle which acted as a centre point at Richard the Lionheart’s wedding to Queen Berengaria. Other highlights include the famous Roman ruins at nearby Curium. Curium is also home to a pretty and secluded cliff-backed Curium Beach. Dassoudi, located about 4 kilometres from Limassol, is the most popular beach and offers great facilities, but can get very busy. Fasouri Watermania waterpark is a great day out with plenty of chutes and pools too keep you entertained!
The locals are fun-loving, welcoming people and Limassol hosts a range of summer concerts under the stars in the Greco-Roman theatre of Kourion, a Wine Festival in September and a Carnival in February. Both new and old town have shops from bazaars to high-end designer shops - and, of course, a selection of bars, restaurants and nightclubs. For something a bit more mellow, there are plenty of laid-back bars and pubs and many of them provide traditional Cypriot entertainment.
Situated close to the Troodos Mountains, Limassol offers plenty of places nearby to go exploring and great opportunities to see traditional Cypriot villages. The sun-kissed southern slopes of Troodos make an ideal location for vineyards. Limassol area produces some of the best wines in eastern Mediterranean, the most well-known being Commandaria.
Dining options include traditional Cypriot tavernas with typical meze served (a tapas-like small dishes, which are a great way to get an idea of local cuisine), Italian, French and international restaurants and a selection of fast food chains and buffets. Limassol really caters for all ages and budgets.
Holidaymakers will not get bored in Limassol : Its excellent location between two historic towns of Amathus and Kourion and 15 km of coastline ensure that there are a lot of interesting things to see and do! Kourion for example is home to an amazing ancient Amphitheatre and Amathous is an ancient city-kingdoms.
