Mix up sun-drenched beaches with a cosmopolitan town bursting with restaurants, bars, and historic attractions to explore and you’ve got the perfect recipe for fun-filled Limassol holidays. Located on the south coast of Cyprus, it’s ideal if you want to do a bit of sightseeing alongside your classic beach holiday. It’s also a family-friendly place with lots on offer to keep the kids entertained.
Stroll along the palm-lined golden sandy beach or step back in time and wander the maze of cobbled streets that run behind in the old town. Here you can shop for local crafts as you admire the Byzantine architecture, or delve deeper into the history of the town with a trip to the medieval castle. If everyone’s getting a bit hot and bothered, cool them down and take the kids to Limassol’s water park, with a range of slides and wave pools for a day of fun. Hit the beach and try one of the many water sports on offer. If you’re a more experienced diver, the Zenobia wreck, which is home to a rich and varied marine life, is close by. There are plenty of restaurants, cafés and bars to choose from as the sun goes down.
Visit in early summer before the school holidays for warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine, but quieter beaches.
