Limnatis - almond village in Cyprus
Limnatis is a lovely small village in Limassol district. Its name comes from the Greek word “limni” which means “lake”. However, today this village is known among the tourists not by its lakes, but by large almond groves and citrus plantations that surround Limnatis. The population of the village is really small and counts up to 400 people, but it’s often crowded here, because many visitors come to see blooming trees and enjoy local food. Therefore, we recommend to book a taxi in Limassol in advance, if you want to visit this lovely place.
