Fylde Coast Musings vs Cyprus Life – in pictures

Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas at the beginning of March 2004 and spent the next glorious 12 years in Limassol, Cyprus. Sadly, in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We now live on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea just across from Fleetwood. More places to discover and capture on camera!

San Rafael Marina is situated on the east side of Limassol close to the Amathusa tourist area and not too far from the Atlantica Bay (Thomson) Hotel, Elias Beach, Le Meridien and of course the San Rafael hotels.

There’s a long stretch of sandy beach on either side of the marina and it’s very popular with the locals in the summer – so get there early!

Some quite nice sailing yachts/boats can be seen from the walkway along the marina towards the club/restaurant.

There’s also a dive centre where you can visit the dive school for a “try dive” or take up a fully qualified PADI diving course.

More photos of San Rafael Marina and the surrounding area can be seen on my CyprusPictures flickr account.
