Cyprus Road Trip: Limassol


Limassol was our third stop on our road trip – a seaside city with a lengthy marina and a rich history. We enjoyed exploring its old town district and walking along its vast stretch of beaches and boards.

Obi the cat

We chose to stay in a vintage style flat near the centre of Limassol. The flat was beautifully decorated, but our highlight of staying there was definitely Obi, the flat cat. She was endlessly adorable, extremely friendly and a little bit mischievous. I miss her jumping on me to rub her head against my chin.

Limassol Castle

The castle is the historical epicentre of Limassol, which has gone through many changes as centuries and kings have gone by. It’s quite a small castle and sparse in information, but worth a visit for the Limassol skyline at the top.

The marina

A quite windy, but relaxing walk along the marina in winter was exactly the fresh air we needed away from the small streets and roads of the rest of the city. I do love good boardwalk and watching the waves crash against the rocks.

Seafood on the beach

On our day in Limassol, I found out I passed quite a difficult paediatrics exam. So naturally I was over-the-bloody-moon. We decided to treat ourselves to a celebration dinner by the beach with oysters, crab and grilled fish. We also managed to attract the attention of quite a few stray cats, which we didn’t mind at all. In fact, the waiters watched on in amusement as Harpall cuddled one on his lap!

  • Ach, I loved Cyprus so much! Off to nose at the rest of your trip. And every holiday spot should come with its own furry friend.
    Well done on passing the exam too 🙂
