A mix of old and new
Lively Limassol’s the biggest resort on the island and it’s a total melting pot – part traditional Cypriot town, part fun-fuelled modern resort. By day, explore the old town and glistening marina on foot or by bike before hitting the high-street shops. As the evening comes around, the nightlife in Limassol is as energetic as it gets.
Acres of golden sand
The town centre’s flanked by curving beaches with Blue Flag status. Dasoudi Beach is the attention-grabbing stretch in the middle, with an almost-horizontal shelf of sand and warm, shallow waves. It all links up along a palm-lined seafront promenade, so just watch the sunset over a cocktail.
A taste of the city
The skyscraper-studded skyline of Limassol also takes this by-the-water resort up a notch, into a full-blown city with a seaside. It offers the whole package if you're after a beachy break that nails the cool metropolis brief too. Eat out in swish restaurants and tavernas or head further out into the surrounding wine regions.
