From Blue Flag beaches stacked with sunloungers to ancient Roman ruins and a Medieval castle, Limassol has something for every member of your clan.

Limassol’s old town is paved with pretty cobbled streets that wind around the stunning castle at its centre. 19th century buildings are everywhere, housing traditional cafes and restaurants serving up yummy meze platters. Visit Anexartisias Street while there – a popular shopping spot for both tourists and locals.

Soak Up the History

It’s not just the sunshine that you can soak up here. There’s a wealth of historical sites for you to enjoy too, including the ancient cities of Kourion - home to the House of Achilles, the Altar of Apollo and an amazing amphitheatre - and Amathus, which is believed to be one of the most ancient royal cities on the island.

Visit a Bouzoukia

A bouzoukia is a traditional taverna which plays live music, like Limassol’s Lyra Voice club. Originating from the name of the Greek guitar-like instrument that is played, bouzouki music can also be found around charming Irinis Street. Immerse yourself in some authentic entertainment with this fab night out.

Laze on the Beaches

Limassol isn’t short of beaches for you to laze on. Dasoudi Beach is a Blue Flag stretch perfect for trying out watersports, while Lady’s Mile Beach is closer to the pretty port area. For remoteness, head for Governor’s Beach – a small cove about 20mins away. There’s also the nearby WaterMania Waterpark to cool off at.

Getting Around

Buses are in abundance, and offer a convenient and inexpensive way of getting around Limassol without much fuss at all. Service taxis – which are shared – are also available, but only run until 6pm and only operate between towns. Because they’re shared, travel is inexpensive. Normal taxis can also be flagged down. Walking is a great way of exploring, and given the traffic, can often be quicker!

By Bus

Limassol has an excellent bus service, which will get you from A to B cheaply and comfortably. Buses run locally, and also between major resorts, and are regular and reliable.

By Car

Hiring a car is a great way to explore more of the island. However, if you’re staying in the centre of Limassol, parking can be difficult and the roads are narrow and busy. Drive on the left.
