, yachts are within an easy sail of the most picturesque and popular coastal resorts in Cyprus
, including Larnaka, Pafos, Latchi, Protaras and Ayia Napa. With one of the mildest winters in the Mediterranean (average temperatures of 14 degrees from November to February), the yachting season in Cyprus is almost limitless, offering safe anchorage.
An abundance of bays and beaches
LADY’S MILE (3NM)
Just a short distance away from the marina and the city centre, Lady’s Mile is the most secluded sandy beach in the area. Set amidst wild landscape, with a handful of restaurants for lunch and refreshments, its shallow and clear waters make it ideal for long walks, children and windsurfing. This mile long beach is the first destination of choice for yachts in Limassol
and has been a local favourite for decades.
PISSOURI BAY (22NM)
Framed by white cliffs and fringed with many excellent tavernas, Pissouri Beach enjoys an air of calm, in extraordinarily tranquil surroundings. Situated between the cities of Limassol and Pafos, the beach’s clear waters are well-suited to watersports. A mile inland from the beach, Pissouri Village has retained its traditional Cypriot character and lists an open-air theatre as one of its many attractions.
APHRODITE’S ROCK (25NM)
One of the best known landmarks of the island, Aphrodite’s Rock is where, as ancient mythology will have it, the Goddess of beauty and love was born, arising from the foam of the sea and first setting foot on the earth. The spot has been immortalised for modern culture by Botticelli’s 15th century painting, and today is the subject for anyone with an eye for photography, particularly at sunset.
KONNOS BAY (50NM)
The picturesque blue flag Konnos Bay Beach is sheltered from the prevailing winds by Cape Greco Peninsula, a national forest park with a dramatic rugged coastline. Located in the coastal town of Protaras, it is renowned for its crystal blue beaches and popular as the locals’ favourite summer destination. The nearby sea caves abound with sealife, offer many secret places to explore, by boat, jet-ski or snorkel.
AKAMAS PENINSULA (68NM)
The Akamas Peninsula is one of the most beautiful locations on the entire island, covering approximately 230km2 of wild untouched landscape, amazing natural beauty, deep gorges and stunning sandy bays. The area is home to rare birds, butterflies, and an extremely important breeding ground for the endangered green turtles and hawks-bill turtles.
