With a population of around 160,000, Limassol is the largest seaside resort in Cyprus and it is the second largest city after Nicosia. Limassol is a modern city with high standards of medical services and well reputed schools, offering visitors and residents a good standard of living and quality housing, whether in apartments, townhouses or independent villas. Due to the size of Limassol, many opportunities exist in the residential and commercial property sectors, while property prices seem to be a happy medium between the higher prices of Paphos and the lower prices of Larnaca.
Situated on the southern coast, Limassol is dwarfed by the magnificent backdrop of the Troodos mountains, which spread for 10 miles along the coast. Limassol offers beautiful beaches, nightlife, shopping, culture and historical monuments and museums, making it an excellent option for all types of holidaymakers who flock here to boost a strong rental property market in this area. This is a very historical city where you can visit the Cyprus Medieval Museum, Limassol Castle and the Kolossi Medieval Castle. Limassol beaches have very dark sand or pebbles while the best beach is called “The Ladies Mile”, situated close to the new harbour. There is also a very attractive new marina in Limassol that has been equipped with every facility to please tourists and property investors alike.
