The name of Kalymnos beach in the area known as Governor’s Beach is reminiscent of its early identity, when it was once a destination for divers seeking out the many sponges that were found in the area. Sponge divers would often travel there from the Greek island of Kalymnos, the name was thus given to this beach in Limassol.

The area was named Governor’s Beach much later, when it was frequented by the British who were in Cyprus during the time of the island’s colonization. In fact, the Governor at the time had his holiday home in the area. The historical name is still in use to this day, as many locals refer to the beach as Kalymnos, and the name has also been adopted by one of the restaurants in the area.

The beach is awarded with a Blue Flag, thanks to its exceptional natural beauty as well as the cleanliness of its waters. The tall, pure white rocks that surround the sandy bay create a spectacular backdrop, offering stunning views both to bathers in the water as well as to those gazing from above. The family nature of the beach and the services offered just a short distance away are yet another reason to choose this beach.
