Limni Adventures

Published 25th of October, 2022

It is time to return to one of our favourite places. We wanted to do something different, so we went looking for interesting crystals near Limni Mine. We've done this before, but this time we had the drone with us...

Limni Pier


We'll start our adventure today at Limni Pier. This is now a very popular destination for swimmers and fishermen and women alike. It started life however, as the final destination of a railway line which ran down from Limni Mine. When it closed, the tracks were removed, and dumped in the sea between here and Polis Camp Site. I know this because we accidentally found them when we were swimming off a remote beach in the area.

Old Buildings


Presumably the buildings that are behind the pier used to be part of the railway line too. They have been ruins ever since I can remember, but when we visited it looked like they were being renovated.

House Rules


There's a bit more history to this place. From what I remember, there were plans to turn the old mine into a Golf Resort. These plans are now (I think) dead in the water, but one of the prerequisites to the original approval was that the pier was converted into a tourist attraction.

Polis and Akamas View


The railway tracks are that way, under the sea. We actually published a film of them a couple of years ago. You can see that in the link below, if you are that interested!

Towards Argaka


This view of the beach up towards Argaka has change recently. There used to be lots of polluted sand and overgrowth there, but it has been tidied up. More on that later.

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...

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...
