Top 10 events happening in Limassol for superyacht crew

10 December 2021• Written by Laura Nicholls for Limassol Marina

Having already been flagged as a Mediterranean superyacht hotspot, Cyprus’ vibrant coastal city Limassol and its first-class Marina are taking things to a whole new level.

Limassol Marina is a slice of heaven in the Mediterranean with everything a visitor could need to enjoy the superyacht lifestyle to the max. Not only can the facility accommodate 650 berths for yachts up to 110 metres in size, but comes with ultra-luxurious on-sea residences, a cultural centre, deluxe spas, a boutique shopping centre and a fully-equipped fitness suite.

Naturally, the many sought-after berths and their yachts at Limassol Marina are all joined by plenty of fantastic and hard-working crew, who needn’t be at a loose end while in the Marina.

Thanks to a specially-curated agenda, Limassol Marina ensures that there is plenty of year-round entertainment for the employees of all visiting superyachts. As seen here, everything outlined on the agenda makes the most of Limassol Marina’s highly-rated hospitality and what Cyprus’ most characteristic city has to offer:

Sunset barbeque and crew happy hour

In one of the Marina’s exceptional dining venues and lounge bars, crews will find the perfect set-up to enjoy drinks and food during the daily happy hour event. Those who get together here may choose to carry on the fun on a day where the infamous sunset barbeque is hosted on the Limassol Marina Helipad. With views over the coastline, the Marina, and Limassol city, crew and guests can taste traditional Cypriot barbeque dishes and socialise long into the night.

Clean the sea with your SUP and Bi-communal beach clean-up

As two important environmental initiatives, the Limassol Marina team, berth holders and crew can get together to help clean one of the most famous and crowded beaches in Limassol and the coastline during either the clean the sea event or beach clean up. Carrying the slogan “Going Green Together”, the events not only reduce the local environmental footprint but contribute to ocean conservation and wildlife protection. At the end of the events, all participants can kick back and relax on the Peninsula Beach, sipping drinks offered by Limassol Marina’s Gazebo Beach Bar.

Limassol Marina Yacht Club Regatta

The next Limassol Marina Yacht Club Regatta is set to bring the Limassol yachting community together and provide any visiting crew an exhilarating day of racing along the gulf of Limassol, with incredible performances by various sailing yachts from several different classes. Dates for the 2022 edition are still to be confirmed.

Mixology workshop and wine tasting

For those interested in fine wines and cocktail making, an invitation to these unique events are not to be missed as, once in the dining venues at Limassol Marina, crews and captains are invited to concoct and try a delicious mix of different cocktails and other beverages. The mixology event is always a highly enjoyable experience, as is the wine tasting, where guests are given the chance to get to know the many distinct flavours that come from the Marina’s extensive wine offerings.

Troodos Mountains hiking trip

For a chance to explore Limassol further, the regular hiking trip to the nearby mountains comes with abundant nature and stunning views – something that most crew members crave after long voyages at sea. The hiking trips are usually concluded with a delicious lunch in Troodos mountains where everyone can relax over a variety of traditional dishes of Cyprus.

Circuit Training

For most, time in the gym is a welcome retreat, and a good way to dispel the stress of a hard-working day onboard. That’s why the Marina’s on-shore Sanctum Spa & Fitness Club offers crew members the chance to take part in some fun group physical exercise through a variety of circuit high-intensity interval training. A range of other spa and beauty treatments are also available.

Music under the stars

When the magical open-air concert, Magic under the stars, is held at the Limassol Marina Square during the autumn, the area is transformed into a gorgeous on-the-sea wonderland. Here, the ambience and exceptional acoustics give an intimate concert experience with the beautiful sound of music reverberating across the Marina. This is an external event to be hosted at the Limassol Marina in 2022.

Limassol Coffee Festival 

As a popular external event held at the Marina each year, the open-air Coffee Festival sees coffee enthusiasts from far and wide gather to experience the latest in sensational coffee varieties, new equipment and tastes. Guests can also enter the Coffee Championships, or take part in some of the many tailor-made workshops.

Limassol Boat Show

For those crew members who aren’t already due to pay a visit, the fast-growing Limassol Boat Show 2022 is a three-day event that brings out the best of live yacht shows. Guests can expect to see a variety of new products as well as meet some of the industry’s leading buyers, manufacturers, sellers and boating enthusiasts. The line-up is set to include the latest in models across the industry, from trailer boats to superyachts, as well as recreational fishing and diving products, water-sports equipment, Jetskis, accessories and more.

Christmas on the Sea and weekend festivities

To celebrate one of the most exciting time of the year Limassol Marina plays host to the joyful family event, Christmas on the Sea. While spreading some Christmas magic in the heart of the city, the showstopper is the Marina’s 12-metre-high Christmas tree that is lit during a fun evening ceremony.   Along with a variety of fun activities and shows, Christmas on the Sea sees an agenda of festive concerts during each December weekend featuring local musicians and choirs who sing and play much-loved Christmas classics and carols at the Limassol Marina Square.

Going Green Together

Each year, the Going Green Together event is an important platform that educates and spreads environmental awareness to all the marina visitors as well as to the region’s wider yachting community. This is done through numerous fun, informative and interactive workshops that are dedicated to World Environment Day. The Limassol Marina is the location for this external event.
