Things to do on your Cyprus holidays this May
Whether you’ve booked a stay in our luxury hotel for your Cyprus holidays, or you’re a local looking for a fantastic event to attend, May sees one of the most vibrant and beautiful festivals take place – the Limassol Flower Festival. Held every year in our fabulous town, the Limassol Flower Festival will give you plenty of photo opportunities to remind you of your Cyprus holidays; the streets burst into colour and you can smell the amazing floral aromas all around you, stimulating your senses to the max!
Beginning on Saturday the 12th of May, if you can tear yourself away from relaxing at your luxury hotel of choice (which we hope is the Londa, naturally!), you can head down to the Yermasoyia police station, where the car parking area opposite hosts the opening ceremony. Visitors will be treated to traditional Cypriot dancing and singing, which you can enjoy while tasting some local dishes served at the festival cafe. Flower displays dominate the scene, but you can also buy beautiful handmade crafts made by local artisans.
Our luxury hotel puts you in the heart of the action
With the first day always falling on a Saturday, the flower fun continues the next morning at around 10am, culminating in a beautiful parade which travels along the main sea road; this means that if you’re a guest at our luxury hotel, you’re in the prime position to watch the parade as it passes along – if you stand close enough, you can try to catch some of the flowers that are cast among the crowds by participants in the procession! On Sunday, 13th May the Limassol Flower Festival parade starts at around 6.30 in the evening and ends back at the parking area an hour or so later, with final celebrations and more traditional Cypriot entertainment to enjoy. It really is a wonderful sight and will give you the chance to rub shoulders with the locals during your Cyprus holidays.
What else is on offer during your May Cyprus holidays?
Another event you may see while on your Cyprus holidays in May is the Cyprus Rally, which has been running since 1970. Broken down into various ‘special stages’ and ‘road sections’, cars race around the streets of Limassol and into the Troodos Mountains to fight for the chance to be hailed champion. With our luxury hotel being situated in the very town that hosts the event, your spring time visit may well coincide with the action!
