Is Limassol the destination for a hot holiday in May?

Hello

I wonder if you can help me. My friend and I are looking for a holiday in May for a week. The criteria is: Hot and to have the option of a good nightlife for 26 year old girls. As it’s only a week we don’t really want to go anywhere outside Europe. Does Limassol tick all those boxes? I have been to Protaras/Ayia Napa in May and it was really hot, however I think we are too old for that area anymore and would like something with a little bit more culture.

Any help gratefully received!

By my standards it will not be hot in May (around 11-27 Celsius) in Limassol but it will be warm and you can sit by the beach etc. Limassol is a vibrant city all year round with lots of hotels - to suit all budgets- and excellent nightlife for all ages and tastes. It all depends what your looking for and what your budget is. Also Limassol is a great starting point for day trips to the mountains and wine making villages of the districts.

Hi,yes Limassol should be fairly warm in May,as the above poster has said ,there is always a buzz there. as it is a working town it doe,s not rely so much on tourists as other resorts.there are some good restaurants around the four seasons area, but my favorite place at night is the area around Limassol Castle.

The night life is good in the tourist area.for your age group, try

The basement

breeze bar

just to name a few. Julie

I suppose it depends when in May you are thinking of going. We have had very hot weather at the end of May in Limassol. I agree with the others that it could suit you very well. There are lots of different areas along the coast road with different levels of activity. The old town has lots of new up and coming restaurants/bars these days and you will find plenty of activity in the tourist area.

As sunnycy says it is a good starting point for any trips you might want to make.
