i närheten av Episkopí, Eparchía Lemesoú (Cyprus)

Trip did start at beautiful beach I didn't drive to the beach I know it very well, so I did start to drive right away towards to Limassol at close to the shore as possible.

Kourion Beach is a beautiful beach with an ancient history.

Located in the greater Lemesos (Limassol) area of Episkopi Bay, Kourion beach is a 1 km long coast that is particularly striking with its natural palette of colours, and a regal and ancient history.

Its designated swimming area has an exceptionally wide shore, comprised of sand and pebbles. The seawaters are crystal-clear and varying shades of blue that beautifully contrast with the surrounding white hills. Windsurfing can also be enjoyed here.

Facilities on the beach include toilets, showers, changing rooms, sun beds, umbrellas and several fish taverns. Within a short distance (about 1 km) there are convenience stores, a children’s playground and accommodation.

Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach from April - October.

One of the island’s most famous archaeological sites - that of ancient Kourion - is close by and well worth a visit, especially for its magnificent Greco-Roman amphitheater where cultural events are still held to this day.

The beach also offers disabled access.

Saltlake of Limassol or as we call it "Aliki" characterized as a desert at summer after when it dries from brackish water and wetland at winter enriched with fresh water from the rains and marshes. Located very near to Akrotiri village and just 2 km from Limassol. Although Cyprus is controlled by the base of British.

The salt lake thousands of years ago was united by the sea. Specifically, there was only the southernmost end of today's peninsula and was a small island. With the passage of time, the island is connected with two solid arms with the rest of the island.

Beside the salt lake is a sandy beach with a length of 5 km called "Aplostra", the English call it the Lady's mile.

It is three times the size of the Larnaka salt lakes making it greater in length and the largest of the eastern Mediterranean. This natural habitat it has international importance, is the most important area of bird-fauna in Cyprus, attracting many birdwatchers. The most popular bird in the region are the thousands of flamingos (router rosette). The season that is usually come are the months of December, January, and February, and by the end of April are leaving, despite the fact that in recent years have stayed during the summer months. Surprisingly for two consecutive years is visited us the only one black flamingo!
Passing from their habitats you will see the ducks that exceed ten thousand a year and swans swimming on swamp carefree among thousands of reeds and hundreds of birds. You will also see birds that are rare or are endangered or fragile and many species are critically dependent on the types of habitat area. Important is the fact that in the area is visiting us for a rest during the autumn migration of about half of the African population Demoiselle crane (Anthropoides Virgo) coming between mid-August and early September.

Cyprus is one of the countries that signed the Ramsar Convention and the region ισ protected so as not to be converted to wetlands. This wetland has natural resources of great value (recreational, economic, scientific). Aquatic birds that migrate seasonally not feel any threat. But we do not know whether there are effects with the huge antennae of British bases that were placed to spy on the Middle East. Also, military planes and helicopters causing noise from the English military airport located in the southeast of the Cape.

Around the area, there are monasteries, churches and archaeological sites.
