You too can sample many types of local wine in the hundreds of bars and restaurants in Limassol, the island’s second largest city and capital of its wine industry. The Potamos Yermasoyias area, also known as "Sunset Strip" is very cosmopolitan and is lined with international restaurants, bars, English-style pubs and trendy clubs. In contrast, the Old Town offers a more traditional atmosphere with local tavernas, cafenions (coffee shops) and ouzeries.
The shopping is diverse too. There are elegant boutiques with designer-label clothing, pavement stalls selling gold and silver jewellery made by local artisans, ceramic and leatherware shops. Even Woolies and M&S have stores here. The beaches stretch some 17km along the coastline, with every imaginable watersport on offer, including scuba diving. Governor’s and Ladies Mile beach are popular with the locals who come for a beach barbecue at the weekend.
Limassol is a great base for exploring the island. The majestic Troodos mountains form a back drop to the city and can be reached in about one hour. The pleasant summer climate offers a welcome relief from the heat of the coast and the densely forested slopes, rustic villages, sweeping valleys and nature trails are perfect for walking. A short drive from Limassol is Kolossi Castle, the Temple of Apollo and then fabulous Kourion amphitheatre, dating back 2000 years..
