Ayios Yeoryios Alamnou -  Limassol
The water here is crystal clear as the beaches are stony rather than sandy – so pack some ‘jellies’! Strung along the coast are a series of little coves which are easily accessible from the coastal track…a stroll in the moonlight is for born romantics!

Ayios Yeoryios Alamanos Taverna is open daily from 09.00 – 11.00 p.m. and booking on a Sunday is essential. Tel 99-624376


Ayios Yeoryios Alamanos makes a great day out on your Cyprus Holiday
Ayios Yeoryios Alamnou - Limassol

In the south-eastern corner of Limassol District lies Ayios Yeoryios Alamanou – St George of the Germans. It is said that St George was one of the 300 German saints who settled in this area as a hermit. In the 12th century, a small monastery was built on the spot and in 1949 the Bishop of Kitium (later Makarios 111, Archbishop of Cyprus) converted the monastery into a convent with 13 nuns who moved from the convent at Dhryenia. There are two small Byzantine style chapels at the convent, dedicated to Ayios Pantelis and Ayios Nektarios and there is also a main church. The Nuns cells are situated on either side of the church. It is very much a working convent, and to raise money, the nuns sell flowers and plants and paint icons.

The coastline in this area is stunning as coastal erosion has carved the limestone cliffs into sea stacks, caves, blow-holes, stacks and islets. The left- hand track next to the convent leads down to the coast and to another hidden treasure a really good fish taverna with a large grassed area overlooking the beach and sunbeds, sun shades and shower. On Sundays it becomes incredibly busy and to get a table for lunch can be tricky! Meat is served but fish is the ‘order of the day’ and the Fish Mezé is strongly recommended!
