About Limassol

Limassol is the second largest city on the island of Cyprus and has, as its backdrop, the magnificent Troodos Mountains. Today Limassol is an excellent resort town with a ten-mile stretch of coastline. It has a very busy shopping centre with numerous taverns and restaurants and nightlife to suit all tastes ranging from the modest to the sophisticated. Limassol is also an important sea port, industrial centre,  offshore business centre and port of registration for shipping.

The modern economic development of the city started in the beginning of the 20th Century with the growth of the wine and spirit industry. During this time the large citrus and vineyard plantations, west of Limassol were developed. The city also became the major exporting centre of Amiantus ore which was extracted and transferred from the Troodos Mountains via a 24-kilometre aerial cableway to the city's shore where it was loaded onto cargo ships ready to export it to destinations all over all the world.

The third and probably the most lucrative feather in Limassol’s cap is tourism. Started in the 1930’s, the tourist industry rapidly developed into an important economic activity with Platres on Mount Olympus being the major tourist destination of the time. This small area saw many visitors from all over Greece and Egypt including King Farouk of Egypt. Nowadays of course, a Cyprus holiday means more than just a trip up a mountain. There are innumerable resorts on the island that are extremely popular with East and Western Europeans, as well as with visitors from the Americas, Africa and the Asian countries. A large part of Cyprus’ international appeal as a holiday destination, second home or retirement location, is that it is easily reached from the north, south, east and west and its climate can always be relied upon.

The industrial activity in Limassol around the late 60’s early 70’s, changed the face of the city once again. The creation of the first industrial area in 1969 and the completion of the new Limassol seaport at the beginning of the 70's saw the town become a major commercial centre but the real growth came with the events of 1974 and the Turkish invasion; the city's population tripled almost overnight.

Cyprus’ second largest city, the island's main seaport, the centre of its wine industry and a bustling holiday resort, Limassol is a busy, cosmopolitan seaside town. The "city of fun" as it's known, Limassol is home to the world famous Cyprus Wine Festival, a ten-day extravaganza held between August and September in the Municipal Gardens of Limassol. Entry is free to this annual event in which Cyprus' wine-growing capital, celebrates the country's annual grape harvest with a festival. Scores of the island's wineries and vineyards converge on the town's stately gardens to present their best wines to an eager, appreciative and very knowledgeable public. Wine tasters gather in their hundreds for the opportunity to sample some of the island's viticultural specialities like Muscats, pine-flavoured Retsinas and the island's renowned dessert wine, Commanderia, all served up with music and dancing in the Gardens' open-air theatre.

Limassol is also home to the Carnival parade in spring, a celebration, during which hundreds of separate parties are held, joining together to become a single, weeklong bash. July and August sees Limassol’s International Dance Festival take place at the Garden Theatre and any number of performances laid on at the ancient theatre of Curium. For something a little more permanent, you may wish to visit Limassol Castle. Not just an old castle this, it is home to The Cyprus Mediaeval Museum, the District Archaeological Museum, the Folk Art Museum, the Limassol Municipal Art Gallery, and the Municipal Gardens. Not far from here you’ll find the freshwater Yermasogia Dam, frequented by many keen anglers looking to land Largemouth Bass, Roach, Silver Bream, Carp and Catfish and the Salt Lake of Akrotiri which is the temporary home for thousands of migrating birds in winter, and a stopover point for many more as they fly on to different climates in spring and autumn.

Aside from bird watching and freshwater Angling,  Limassol’s sporting calendar is full to bursting with events held across virtually every sporting discipline including Cycling, Diving, Fencing, Flying, Golf,
Horse Racing, Football, Waterskiing, Skiing, Yacht Racing, Kayaking and Rock Climbing and from here you can organise Adventure excursions, Boat Charters and Excursions, Bungee Jumping, Jeep Safaris, Octopus fishing, Sea Fishing and Yacht Charters. That said, in the nearby wine producing foothills of the Troodos, delightful villages continue with the much gentler pace of rural life.

From a business perspective, the island’s location, its excellent infrastructure, its accessibility by sea and air and its educated workforce, make Cyprus an attractive proposition indeed. Add to that the relatively low cost of living, the resultant lower wage bill and the tremendous change that Cyprus as a whole, has gone through over the last quarter of a century and it should come as no surprise that the island and Limassol in particular, has become a favoured offshore company location. There are large multinationals and offshore companies based here involved across almost the entire business spectrum ranging from trade to marketing and distribution, ship management and maritime, business engineering and consultancy, news and banking, insurance and financial services. Cyprus and Limassol’s busy seaport provide the perfect East-West/West-East link, ideal for all those wishing to do business in North Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe.
