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 ruins of a Roman amphitheatre, or scale the 16th-century castle, before hitting the high street shops. Plus, 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.
