How Long?


I have no idea how far the track goes out to the sea. It certainly continues for some distance but I stopped following it once I got out of depth.

So What Was It?


So what is the track for? I know there used to be a railway track on Limni Pier. Part of me thought they might have just dragged it down here from there, but it is a fair distance, and a waste of metal. So was there another jetty here? I asked on Facebook if anybody had any old maps of the area circa 1970, but so far have had no luck.

Ho Hum


Now, I could show you lots more screen shots of the rails, but they are all a bit samey, so instead I am showing you a ruin nearby. To get there, you drive to Limni Pier and turn right just before it. The track here takes you to the right of Limni Mine. To the left of the start of this track, there is a ridge which probably had the original Limni Mine railway on it. From there, we took these snaps, which are rather nice.

Beach View



Anyway, we've blogged about Limni Mine before. But we've never covered one specific ruin, primarily because it looked dull an uninteresting. We were wrong.

Happy Halloween!

As it is Haloween and the spirits of the departed are set to walk the Earth, placated only by sweets and small denomination coins, we thought it the perfect time to pay a visit to some spooky Akamas sites. So sit back and enjoy our trip to a pre-Christian Burial Ground and a spooky old mine, with not a janitor in sight.

From Polis to Limni Pier

While the weather isn't quite what we would like yet, you can still have fun on an afternoon stroll. Today we visit the area between Polis Municipal Beach and Limni Pier. How does it look now that Spring is here?

Limni Mine

Limni Mine is an abandoned Copper and Sulphur Mine, which at some point in the future may become a golf course. With that in mind we thought we better take a look around before the golf balls start flying...

Limni Crystal Hunting

We've long been fans of hunting for exotic crystals in the countryside of Cyprus. Half the fun of it is finding an interesting geological location. But it can also be a lot of hard work. So we thought we would show you it is possible to find some nice crystals with nothing more than a little hammer. They won't win any awards, but they are easy to find, and make a change from looking for shells on the beach...
