The Limassol Marina is one of the most popular places in town. Built in the place of the old port, it definitely gives you a glimpse, of how the city might look like in a few years.
With its luxurious white yachts, modernistic architecture and high-end shops, the it reminds me of Cannes or Monte Carlo.
The beautiful scenery hypnotizes you, giving a sense of serenity and vacation. Which is probably why it attracts so many people, locals and tourists.
A huge selection of cafés and restaurants gives you the opportunity to choose according to your budget and desire. Whether you are looking for coffee, pizza or a proper meal, it is all there in front of you. Here are a few of my personal favourite places.
This is a simple coffee place, with the most outstanding view.
The tables are situated right next to the water, so you really get the feeling of island life, when you are there. This is also the reason why on Fridays and weekends it is almost always full.
The coffee is ok, the only food available are sandwiches and the dessert menu is pretty small, but the surroundings, make this place a must to visit in the Limassol Marina. Also, the mini sugar donuts are to die for!
Situated behind Café Nero, this Asian restaurant is another great place to pause at.
In the summer it has tables right on the pier, making it perfect for romantic dinners.
The food is really tasty, while the prices are very reasonable. My main critique is the service. The waiters are quite slow and you do have to wait quite a bit for your order to be taken.
Food-wise be careful with the sushi rolls, as for some reason the chefs like to add chives and onion to them ( and trust me it is not a good combo). I would recommend going for the snow crab roll or the California roll, as they are chive free and delicious.
One of the restaurant’s signature dishes, is the ramen soup. And it really is a beautiful mixture of flavors. May I warn you though, the portions are humongous! So if you go for the ramen, don’t order anything else. Either-wise you will be taking the other dish home with you.
Another one of my personal favourites is the pecking duck starter. The combination of savory duck, with a sweet plum sauce, fresh cucumbers , wrapped into a thin rice crepe is something, I can never say no to.
Moving away from the center of the Limassol Marina, you will find yourself at the beginning of Molos or the sea promenade. Right at its beginning is Tsak made, a small café offering crepes, fresh juices and sandwiches.
Small but very tasty, this is a hidden gem.
Their fresh juice mixes are the best in town. They even have a juice to help you get rid of the flu or a headache.
The sandwiches are all made right in front of you , as are the crepes, which can be made sweet or savory, according to your preferences.
Before the Limassol Marina, the main attraction was the Molos. A sea side promenade, that is still very popular among the locals.
Whether you want to walk, run, cycle or simply sit and relax, it is the right place to go to.
Day or night, the views here are stunning. This is also the place for many local festivals and celebrations like Kataklismos, Marathon day and the Children Carnival.
