Amathus Seafront Pathways

The Amathus Seafront Pathways are situated along the coastal area of Amathus, near the Amathus Ruins at Acropolis Hill and the Amathus Archaeological Site, and this area is located east of the city of Limassol, within the Limassol district of Cyprus.

This seafront pathway consists of intermixed wooden planks, gravel, and concrete walkways.  It's situated alongside the Mediterranean Sea and scattered with various ancient Amathus ruins, such as the Amathus Harbor and Necropolis.

The Amathus Harbor was constructed during the Hellenistic period, and it consisted of an outer and inner port.  Today, the Harbor lies below sea level.

The ancient city of Amathus spans over two miles, including the Amathus Necropolis that features underground tombs.  In the eastern part of the Necropolis, a massive limestone jar from the 6th century BC was discovered during an excavation.  Today, this ancient item is on display at the Louvre Museum in Paris.  Other ancient artifacts are were discovered in the Necropolis are included in exhibits at the Limassol District Archaeological Museum.

The Amathus Seafront Pathways spans quite a distance and connects to other seafront paths in the Limassol area.  This lovely area with historical significance and beautiful views is an ideal location for a delightful walk.
