Lemesos (Limassol), Cyprus

The City of Fun and Entertainment

Lemesos or Limassol is a large, cosmopolitan port and resort with some of the best hotels in Cyprus and an enormous selection of restaurants, nightclubs, discos and shops. Combining its roles as the second largest city, the island's main port, the centre of the wine industry and a bustling holiday resort, Lemesos emerges as a spirited and cosmopolitan seaside town.

Today Lemesos is resort, with a ten mile coastline; a busy shopping centre, countless clubs with a night life to suit tastes ranging from modest to sophisticated.

Lemesos is a lively town largely due to the character of Lemesolians, a fun loving lot. No wonder it holds the island's two top festivals, the pre-lenten Carnival with fancy dress balls, parades and festivities and the Wine Festival in September, a wine extravaganza where wine flows freely for everyone to enjoy, courtesy of the local wineries.

Warm Mediterranean Sea water and sandy beaches make Lemesos an ideal beach vacation.

Mediterranean Sea at its best.

It's no wonder why thousands of tourists visit Lemesos every year and keep coming back again and again!

Excellent blue sea, clear water, fishing, boating and much more.

Throughout its history, Lemesos (Limassol) was known as the city of fun and entertainment. No other town in Cyprus can be so «cheerful».

Limassol, the sunniest city of Cyprus. With beautiful beaches, the best nighlife on the Island, great hotels and many ancient places to visit.

This is the gateway to the mountain resorts which can easily be reached via a very good road from Limassol. The villages in the mountains around Limassol are set in the midst of vineyards.

Η όμορφη Λεμεσός, η πόλη της χαράς και του κεφιού
Της Julia Belyan
Από το Sankt-Petersburg, Ρωσία
Η ωραία πόλη της Λεμεσού, η δεύτερη μεγαλύτερη πόλη της Κύπρου με το μεγαλύτερο λιμάνι, τους αρχαιολογικούς χώρους, την εμπορική κίνηση και την 'τρελλή' νυχτερινή ζωή.

Στην πόλη της Λεμεσού υπάρχουν μερικά από τα καλύτερα ξενοδοχεία της Κύπρου.

Στους καυτούς βράχους δίπλα από το σύγχρονο λιμάνι.

Όμορφες παραλίες που ελκύουν χιλιάδες φίλους της θάλασσας.

Νεράιδα στη στεριά...

Η Λεμεσός έχει την ολότελα δική της φυσιογνωμία και χαρακτήρα.

Το ταξίδι στη Λεμεσό αφήνει πάντα όμορφες αναμνήσεις, που σε καλούν να την ξανα- επισκεφθτείς...
