The Village of Pissouri

3. The Village of Pissouri

We first visited Pissouri in 2004 and liked it so much that we vowed to return.

The place is a little gem, you have to leave the Coast road or Motorway between Limassol and Paphos, drive up the mountain to reach the village. The views of the surrounding countryside and towards the sea from the village are spectacular.

The spot in the village to head for is the small town square where there are plenty of tavernas. There are also a couple of local shops to buy the local produce.Pissouri village has retained its traditional Cypriot character, while adapting very successfully to welcome visitors to the village

Pissouri Bay is a 5 minute drive away where there are a number of tavernas and shops in the area. The beach itself is clean and safe and rarely crowded. Water sports available in the summer form a number of suppliers and include jet skis and water skiing, etc. There is also a small diving school if you would like to learn to scuba dive during your stay or visit some of the local dive sites.
