Lemesos
& the South Coast
The physical heartland of the island, Lemesos and the south coast is one of Cyprus’ richest
areas for archaeological remains. In this region, there are also a dozen beaches to sprawl
your limbs on; you can tap into the city’s club scene and spend sleepless nights; or you can
tuck into some sophisticated cuisine that just might ruin your beach-body. The Lemesos area
shelters the country’s second-biggest city and its main port, which also makes Lemesos an
economic centre of the Republic of Cyprus. In addition, it holds one of the most important
military bases in the whole of the Mediterranean region. The Troödos Massif meets the
sea and presents its villages like offerings for tourists to explore. And tourists there are
many; so many that sometimes you forget quite where you are. But fear not, there is also
tranquillity to be found.
The most impressive and important archaeological site in the area is Ancient Kourion,
perched on a bluff overlooking the azure waters of Episkopi Bay, west of Lemesos, which was
significant for its role in the spread of Christianity throughout the island. Ancient Amathous,
to the east of Lemesos, was one of Cyprus’ four original city kingdoms. Richard the Lionheart
first set foot in Cyprus in the 12th century – perhaps the island’s first British colonist – and
liked the country so much he kept it for himself. The English are still here, and occupy the
whole of the Akrotiri Peninsula, where housing estates more reminiscent of England’s home
counties than the eastern Mediterranean are not uncommon.
The area makes a great base for visitors wishing to be in easy reach of all of Cyprus. Take
your time to explore its many facets.
