While the traditional island regions of Agia Napa and Paphos are always popular with tourists, Limassol has been rated the 3rd “up-and-coming” destination in the world, according to Trip Advisor’s ‘Top 10 Traveller’s Choice Destinations on the Rise’. Limassol has developed a reputation as a vibrant region for music, drama, sport and the numerous food and wine festivals staged the whole year round. An increasing number of Limassol’s hotel guests attend the many international trade shows, conferences, health and beauty expos, and leisure exhibitions.
Highly prized for their closeness to the beach and the sea
A new generation of holidaymakers and cultural travellers from around the world are increasingly drawn to stay at one of the many beach hotels Limassol, an area contained within 41.87 km2 (16.17 sq miles), and serenely poised at the island’s most southerly edge overlooking the Mediterranean. Avid sun seekers have always loved the Cyprus weather. During the summer months, the average temperature hovers around 26°C (79°F) with up to 12 hours of sunshine daily while the mercury seldom drops below 12°C (54°F), even in the coldest month of January.
Many unspoilt beaches offer an endless panorama for the eye to explore
It’s no surprise that many of the beach hotels in Limassol, and other holiday hotspots around the Cyprus shoreline, make mention of the island’s 57 ‘Blue Flag’ beaches. Cyprus is singled out as possessing the “Cleanest Bathing Waters in Europe”, with a consistent annual score of 100. The more energetic beach holiday lovers can safely indulge their favourite water sports, from swimming and scuba diving to sailing, windsurfing and jet skiing. It also means that the many unspoilt beaches offer an endless panorama for the eye to explore both the natural and often historic dunes and outlying terrain. The ancient Greco-Roman world may be glimpsed among the many nearby archaeological sites, such as at Amathus, near to Amathounta Beach, just 4.5 km from Londa Hotel.
Londa Beach Hotel is also around 6 kms from Limassol Marina. Undoubtedly, one of the most important developments around Limassol in recent years, the 345 million euro transformation of the harbour area was unveiled in 2014, the magnificent 650-berth marina, complete with artificial islands and luxury residential dwellings. For cultural explorers, the imposing white stone façade of 13th century Limassol Castle also sits adjacent to vintage and modern style restaurants, coffee shops, elegant clothing stores surrounding the old port area.
