The first thing you should do after checking in at the Royal Apollonia Hotel is to organise a tour of the mountains that lie towars the north of Limassol. The trip is guaranteed to be memorable as you will pass through numerous picturesque and traditional villages while travelling towards the Troodos Mountains. The traditional villages in Cyprus are famed for their quaint architecture and locally produced goods. For instance you will get acquainted with lace and wine making. The Cypriot cuisine is also exceptional and unique, and there is no place like trying traditional dishes than being surrounded by grand pine trees in the refreshing mountain tops. Kakopetria and Mylos are two of the most preferred villages that are well-worth your visit!
The island has been blessed with a stunning coastline which is in fact the prime reason Cyprus is one of the most favoured holiday destinations in the world. For those seeking to enjoy the hot sun and deep-blue waters of Limassol’s coast, then you are in for a surprise! All the bays dotting the shoreline of the city are equally exquisite offering visitors days full of fun and relaxation in the midst of beauty.
Lady’s Mile is one of the most crowded and preferred beaches in Limassol. It is located near the New Port of the town approximately fifteen minutes from the centre. This is a spectacularly picturesque beach with grainy white sand and crystal blue shallow waters. It is considered as one of the safest beaches for children and is perfect to relax in the refreshing water, sunbathe under the sun and stroll along the shore!
The first and last thing anyone who is visiting Limassol should stop at is the city’s Promenade! This incredible coastal pathway is a magical experience! You get to watch breathtaking views of the sun dipping into the infinite blue while chatting with locals and admiring the entire centre of town. Have a splendid promenade!
Limassol is the island’s jewel city for a simple reason; the city is a fusion of the old and new, of the coast and mountain of the traditional and modern world! All these features combined make up an exquisite destination, leaving all visitors with the sweetest memories of their holidays in Limassol.
