Being the closest beach hotel to the city centre, a stay at the Crowne Plaza Limassol places you on the doorstep of the best experiences our buzzing coastal city has to offer.
Visit the Limassol Medieval Castle to stand on the historic spot where Richard The Lionheart married Princess Berengaria. Unravel local secrets walking along the windy streets of the Old Town, discovering street art, craft shops and markets which sell local products such as Commandaria, olive oil and Cyprus Delights. Try a Cyprus Coffee at the «kafenio» in the company of a friendly street cat.
The Lady Thetis and Constandis fishing vessels have been deployed to create an artificial reef diagonally opposite the Crowne Plaza. Beginner diving classes can be arranged to discover exciting Mediterranean marine life, while the sea in front of the hotel forms part of the new Limassol marine protected area.
In addition to possessing its own charms, Limassol is a great base from which to explore the rest of the island. Visit the ancient Curium Amphitheatre, explore the village wine trails or stop at one of the ten Byzantine churches on the Unesco World Heritage list. Discover the traditional village of Omodhos or picnic at the Venetian bridge of Tsielefos, all in under an hour’s drive from Limassol.
In the evening, take a stroll along the seafront promenade which connects the Crowne Plaza to the Limassol Marina. Watch out for sculptures by renowned artists in the «Prokymea Park», enjoy stunning sea views from the jetties and have a great meal at one of the eateries in the Old Port or Marina. Before you go, grab an ice-cream from one of the parlours and try local flavours like rose and mastic.
Don't go home without sampling as much local cuisine as you can! Two great beachfront tavernas serving fish meze are located a stone’s throw from the hotel. At the Crowne Plaza our GO LOCAL options include eating «souvlaki» at Lime Beach Bar and trying our weekly Cyprus Delights dinner buffet round the pool throughout the summer. If you have a sweet tooth, try Chef Z's delicious «mahalepi».
