There are not too many busy cities in the world where you can explore ancient historical sites, laze on beautiful beaches, party until dawn at a nightclub, and still enjoy a laid-back, yet cosmopolitan vibe, but Limassol is one of those places. This is the second biggest city on the island of Cyprus, and a unique and exciting holiday destination.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Limassol
A holiday to Limassol would not be complete without visiting one of the many medieval sites scattered in and around the city. Limassol Castle is located in the old town, and is a must-see attraction. This fascinating 14th century castle was built on the site of a Byzantine castle, and today, visitors can walk up the massive drawbridge to explore the artifacts in the Cyprus Medieval Museum inside. The Amathus Ruins are simply stunning for their location on rocky cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean Sea This was an ancient city that dates back over 3,000 years, and features a partially excavated Acropolis and Temple of Apollo.
The beaches are another major attraction to Limassol, as visitors can choose from a range of pleasant strips of sand along the coast. The most popular beach is Dasoudi Beach for its clean Blue Flag certified sand and water, and its convenient facilities such as sun loungers, showers, and beach bars. Families will love Governor’s Beach for its flat sands and shallow waters, and sun worshippers looking for a bit more seclusion and nature can head to Lady’s Mile Beach, just a short drive from the city.
