Best Pissouri Holidays

Situated between the two urban centres of Paphos and Limassol, the small village of Pissouri offers a different version of Cyprus. Rustic charm, the quiet village life and beautiful stretches of golden sands and turquoise water, Pissouri is a delightful destination away from the urban beach-fronts and the busy shops and streets of the more populated parts of Cyprus.

Pissouri Holidays

Lined by hills on either side, Pissouri is divided into two different areas: the village and the bay around Cape Aspro. Along the wide stretch of beach, you’ll find both pristine, undisturbed parts as well as more developed sites. Here you can splash about in the shallow water, relax on a deckchair under a parasol with a drink in hand, or take part in some of the many water sports found here. The bay enables plenty of diving opportunities for both beginners and more advanced underwater adventurers, while wind- and kite-surfing, among other activities, are also readily available.

On the western side of Cape Aspro you’ll find Petra tou Romiou, which is also known as Aphrodite’s Rock. Known as the mythical birthplace of the Greek goddess of love and beauty, the area is dominated by the white rock rising sharply from the clear sea. Located near the main road between Limassol and Paphos, this site is easily reached from Pissouri on an excursion to any of the main cities along the south coast of Cyprus. Day trips from the village will introduce you to the rich history of the island through the museums and ruins that abound here. It is also possible to explore the stunning peaks of the Troodos Mountains while stopping at some of the vineyards found along the hillsides for a taster of delicious Cypriot wine. 

Back in the village of Pissouri, you can wander through its lovely streets and marvel at the beautiful churches and old buildings that hark back to a time when life moved at a much slower pace. The village has numerous shops and restaurants where you enjoy a delicious meal while the evening slowly darkens the blue sky above. In the village you’ll also find a reproduction of an ancient amphitheatre. Here you can enjoy either a play set in antiquity or a modern musical, while the night settles over the area.
