The graphic village of Pissouri is in the Limassol District. It stands at about 30 kilometers west of the city of Limassol and is in the middle of the Limassol-Pafos route. It is the 3rd biggest -in area of administration -village of the Limassol District. In the south it extends up to the sea. It is built on the slope of a hill, surrounded with vegetation, at a distance of 3 kilometers northwest of Cape Aspro.
One version refers that it took its name from the ancient city 'Boosoura', mentioned by the ancient historian / geographer Strabo and placed at the borders of the area of Pissouri. Another version connects the name of the village to events that occurred during nights that were pitch-dark. (In the Cypriot dialect 'pissouri' is considered as 'very dark').
Today the inhabitants of the village, including foreign permanent inhabitants, totaled 1400. During recent years, great attention has been paid to the development of tourism in the area, especially to the Pissouri beach that has a special beauty and is being awarded during the past years with the Blue Flag of Europe.
Apart from its crystal clear waters, making it attractive for the foreigners, the Pissouri beach extends to an enchanting landscape of dazzling natural beauty that begins from Cape Aspro and end in the rocky area across named 'Mavrorotsos'. Protected by Cape Aspro, with its high vertical walls, it creates an admirable combination of mountain and sea that make it unique.
Pissouri could be labeled as one of the most worthy tourist areas of Cyprus because it combines mountain and sea, it offers all the comforts for a pleasant stay, and it stands out for the traditional hospitality of its inhabitants and the warm, friendly atmosphere that the foreign visitor encounters.
The proximity of the village to the remarkable archaeological areas of 'Kourion' and 'Paleapafos' provides to foreign visitors the opportunity for brief excursions to these neighboring areas.
Finally, we must mention that foreign and local visitors can enjoy every summer the delicious Cypriot dishes in the plaza of the village, in a cheerful, entertaining atmosphere created by the artistic performances of various dance and music bands.

Pissouri Village: At one time Pissouri village, on the hill, had a fishing jetty a few kilometers away down the hill, known as Pissouri jetty. Now they are two distinct communities, Pissouri village and Pissouri Beach. The total population in the summer is said to reach around 1100 people, about half of whom are Cypriots, the rest foreign, mainly British, residents and visitors.
Some of the guide books about Cyprus devote a sentence to Pissouri, some even devote a paragraph to the village and its small beach resort. None of them do justice to the unique character and attractiveness of Pissouri to the visitor and holiday maker. the Cypriot character has been retained, it is still very much a working village of farmers, some of whom have now become involved in farming tourists with varying degrees of success. Its very Cypriot character is what attracts the visitor, holiday maker and expatriate residents. Fortunately this is recognized by many of those in the village.
