city overview

The second largest city of the island with a population of around 220,000 citizens, the largest one in terms of area, and also the most upcoming city in terms of lifestyle and economy, mainly due to the large amount of Eastern European and other investors. Even though there is no airport, it is the home of the largest port of the island where all the international trade occurs.

Traditionally it hasn’t been the top tourist attraction, but this has changed over the years with a lot of visitors coming to see the archeological sites (Amathus area and Kourion), the fantastic beach clubs (Plus Sea, Blueberry), the amazing night clubs by the beach (Dolce club, Breeze), and the luxurious hotels (Four Seasons, Londa, Amathus). If one wants to experience the local lifestyle more closely the old town is fantastic, especially for an elegant dinner at Beije, drinks at Library or Guest. Other places not to miss are The old neighborhood for the best fish in town (and probably on the island), Fat Fish for people watching and scenery, Columbia Steak house, and Lokatzis for the best grill in the city.
