The village of Pissouri is found in the district of Limassol, ideally located midway between Limassol and Paphos, on the Cape Aspro ridge. Pissouri dates back to the Byzantine era and is well known for its amazing views and the hospitality of its people. Its inhabitants work mainly in the agricultural or touristic industry. One can try here sweet sultana grapes, figs, almonds, citrus fruit and various kinds of vegetables.
Pissouri is a great and famous touristic destination especially during the summer months when it gets full with locals and foreigners who come to enjoy the lovely location, weather and facilities that the area has to offer. One of the most popular places is the Bay of Pissouri located only 3 km away from the village where one can find numerous hotels, restaurants, bars and a long sand and pebble beach with cool waters. At the bay there is great variety of watersports to choose from like scuba diving, kayaking and jet skiing. The beach of the Bay is also a turtle nesting site so if you are lucky enough to experience the moment the turtles will be hatching make sure not to disturb them.
