With the holiday season having reached a screeching halt, there is only a small window to get in as much relaxation as possible before the hustle and bustle everyday routines takes over. What better way to enjoy some serenity and relaxation than at a beachfront bar?
Calma is located at the desirable Limassol Marina, where modernity and leisure create the perfect combination and there are enough entertainment options to please even the toughest of customers. And Calma aims to do just that, satisfy the individual needs of all of its customers.
Calma can be many things: a cozy nook where to chill out on the comfortable sofas and enjoy your day at the seafront. It can provide you with a bench and stools to socialise with a large group of friends, it offers bar seating. In other words it offers people what they need. The same goes for the reason to visit Calma – be it for food, booze or coffee it aims hard to please with large, popular selections in every category. Although a popular coffee destination during the lunch period, boasting a large variety of blends and coffees, when dusk settles and the dim lighting comes on it becomes a desirable bar.
The first thing I noticed was its wine selection, with a wide variety of wines and sparkling wines it will please the most sophisticated of pallets. Sitting cozy on one of the couches made the choice of wine a sure thing and we chose Greek red Nemeas St George Domaine Skouras. The medium bodied wine was a great selection for the seafront experience, as it all worked together to tickle the taste buds.
Other than wine, Calma has a wide selection of beer, aperitifs and liqueurs that will surely excite. Never forgetting the seafront atmosphere of Calma, one of the best liquers to try on a warm afternoon or as night begins to settle is Mastiha. The pine and licorice aroma will take you in and provide a great option to your bar experience. And with a large variety of beer and draught beer not many things could go wrong with your visit to Calma.
The fact that all these drinks can be teamed with amazing platters – the ouzo platter for the mastiha, the cheese platter for the wine, and a sausage or barbecue platter for beer – denotes a perfectly rounded experience.
All in all, I was thoroughly impressed by Calma and how it strives to satisfy all of its customer’s needs from seating to drinking and dining. If it is a calm and serene beachfront atmosphere you are looking for, this is where you should be headed.
