Beaches & Seacoast Limassol Lady’s Mile Beach

Lady’s Mile Beach

An unspoiled and beautiful coastline.

Located in Lemesos (Limassol), this 5 km coastal stretch of stunning, unspoiled sands and shallow waters runs along the east side of Akrotiri.

The beach boasts dark grey sands and crystal-clear and calm seawaters, with the shallowest waters found at the southern end of the beach – where the dark grey sand turns a golden brown colour. Seashells can be found along the beach.

Facilities on the beach include toilets, showers, changing rooms, sun beds, and umbrellas.

Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach from April – October, 09:00 – 17:00, and until 18:00 during the summer season.

The beach took its name from the mare of the governor during British rule, who used to ride along the beach. Today, the area is well-known locally for its restaurants of fresh fish and traditional Cypriot cuisine. Some of the restaurants offer their own additional facilities, including water inflatables and games for children.

Around 1.5 km from the seashore you can see Akrotiri Salt Lake, a significant wetland in Europe, which attracts migrating birds, including flocks of vibrant pink flamingos and herons during the winter months. Further south of Lady’s Mile is the unspoiled area of Button Beach, where small coastal sand dunes have grown. The interesting Holy Monastery of St. Nicholas of the Cats – built in 365 – is also located nearby.

Access is easy by foot, bike, bus or car, with car-parking available.
