Possibly the best spot in Limassol to watch the sunset!

* 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. Under no circumstances do they have any promotional or nominal value, nor do they serve the interests of Companies, Municipalities, Organizations or Individuals.

Every afternoon in Limassol is special. The city’s sunset is unique and incomparable. Of course, you may find other, similar looking sunsets, yet none will have the deep red hue that is as feverish and intoxicating as this one. For you see, in the land of Commandaria, the sunsets borrow the colors of that ancient, sweet drink.

On Aplostra beach, known by many as Lady's Mile, the sun reigns over the vastness of the meadow. The Akrotiri peninsula hides numerous unexplored beauties and it is difficult to imagine that it is just a mere few kilometers outside the city. The equanimity of the habitat in this region, the wild vegetation and the muffled sounds of the meadow creatures create the perfect setting for such a sunset.

Lovers of the city talk about Homer’s ‘wine-dark’ colors that one can practically "taste" every evening in Limassol. The way that the city’s coastline and its surrounding areas face the sun, and the way the rays travel from the West, softly stroking the rooftops, the sea, the rocks and the trees, creates a spectacle unlike any other. Therefore, during this bewitching hour, you will do well to slow down and give it the rapt attention it deserves.
