Amathus Walking Path

* NOTE: All the tributes of All About Limassol (as the Official Guide of Limassol) aim to ONLY highlight the special aspects of this wonderful city, so that everyone can be aware of the unique Experiences it offers.

A walkway that appears to be taken straight out of a fairytale, with its paved pathway and an enticing color palette, is located east of where the ancient city of Amathus onced thrived. Today, a new settlement is making its mark in the area, enjoying the same unique view of the beautiful azure sea beyond.  

This pathway will lead you from east to west, and from the present to the past, as it whispers exciting tales to you with every step. On your one side, you will see beautiful homes with gardens and balconies, and on the other, the endless blue of the sea. As you make your way across this short distance, just under 1km, you will find that time appears to stop, extending the euphoria of the moment just a little bit longer. 

The path is adorned with flowering jasmine, green shrubbery, and white and fuchsia bougainvilleas. Silence dominates this tranquil area, and all you can hear are the rustling of the leaves, the soft chirping of the birds, and the roar of the sea on days when the waters are rough. This beautiful route is proof that these hills were not chosen at random during ancient times. 


You will enjoy a refreshing walk, especially if you choose to watch the sunset of the sunrise from this walkway. On its eastern end, you will find the cave of Santa Barbara and the ruins of the old monastery.
