Limassol is well-placed to access some of the island's best beaches, although those nearest to the city aren't the most salubrious. Overlooking the city the Troodos Mountains are a haven of tranquillity that provide welcome respite form the relative bustle below (as well as a number of interesting days out).
Limassol is one of the busiest ferry ports in Cyprus, with regular sailings to destinations across the Middle East.
Limassol Port Transfers
With Cyprus an established player in the shipping industry, Limassol and its new port have accumulated importance over time and now is a centre for numerous shipping companies. Most of the island's cargo (importation and exportation) is handled here. In the year 2000, 3,589,000 tonnes of cargo were handled whilst there were roughly 1 million passenger arrival and departures (>90% of total traffic) plus over 50 international cruise liners include Cyprus in their Mediterranean routes resulting in much of that passenger traffic.
