Limassol is not only the second biggest city on Cyprus, but also a big resort town. Where Ayia Napa to the east is all about party, and Paphos to the west is more tranquil with great historical sights, Limassol is more cosmopolitan and classy. The long pretty waterfront is palm lined with bicycle tracks, playgrounds, and trendy cafes. The same classy renovation has Limassol's Old Town been through. For beaches, you need to head to the almost endless (at least if looking towards south) Lady's Mile Beach a few kilometres south of town, or Governor's Beach about 30 km to the east.
