An elongated lake, surrounded by pines and shrubs, which is not only a source of life for the surrounding area, but a unique attraction in mountainous Limassol as well.

The Trimiklini Dam, at an altitude of about 600 meters, is located at an approximately equal distance from Trimiklini, Saitta and Moniatis. The Trimiklini Dam has a capacity of 340,000 cubic meters and it overflows after the first rains of the year, resulting in an impressive scene, when the water falls on the steps that have been built on its south side.

The orchards of the area with plums, pears, apple trees (and other trees), are irrigated from the dam. Meanwhile, it conserves a valuable habitat, providing shelter to various birds during the summer months.
