Lady's Mile beach is situated west of Limassol town, between the New Port and Akrotiri RAF base. The beach was named after the horse (Lady) of a previous RAF base commander who would exercise Lady on the sands. The beach has virtually no development, just a few wood construction restaurants spaced out along its 3- 4 mile length. The port end of the beach is mostly pebbles and the water becomes deep very quickly, but as you get nearer the RAF base the sand becomes whiter and the incline very shallow. There are no buses so you need a car to get there, but its a mostly unspoilt beach, very popular with the locals (specially at weekends and holidays).
