Mean tidal levels Mean spring range about 0.4 m, mean neap range about 0.2 m
Abnormal levels 0.60m
Density of water 1026 g/m3
Maximum size of vessel handled Up to 15 m draught with no limitations on the vessels length
Local weather The prevailing summer wind is a sea breeze that normally blows in from the W. It gets up about midday, blows between 3 and 6 and dies down at night. Away from the coast the wind tends to be SW but closer in it follows the contours of the coast so that at Larnaca it blows from SSW-S. Gales can blow from all directions, but most frequently blow from S or E. In the summer there is frequently a sea fog in the early morning which can reduce visibility to less than a mile. It is usually dispersed by midday. Port operations may be interrupted but the fog usually clears by 08.30L, 10.00L latest. Southeast desert winds bring dust to the area, but normally is not a problem.
Sea state Slight to moderate
Arrival Information
Port operations Multipurpose (excluding Tankers)
Vessel Traffic Services It is operated from Lemesos operations centre on a continuous 24-hours basis. It is manned by internationally qualified VTS officers and operated in accordance with IMO resolution A.857 (20). The centre is responsible for the planning and co-ordination of vessels traffic movements and provides information services concerning the arrival, berthing, anchoring and departure of vessels and also information on aids to navigation, navigation generally, visibility, tidal information and safety of vessels and persons for the Port of Lemesos.  VHF ch 09
Port radio VHF CH 10-16
Notice of ETA 24 hrs prior to arrival
Outer anchorages Anchorage may be obtained within the designated anchorage area centred 1 mile east of Lemesos lighter basin, as shown on the chart, in depth of 10 m to 70 m. The holding ground is good, and although the anchorage is open S and E, vessels with good anchors and cables do not normally drag during gales. From October to April, when NE gales occur, it is usual to anchor in a depth of about 22 m.
During the summer the prevailing W winds sometimes reach gale force in the afternoon, making boat work uncomfortable. For this reason it is advisable for small vessels to anchor to the SW.
Anchoring and fishing are prohibited within the approach channel, as shown on the chart.
Marine farms A marine farm, marked by four light-buoys (cardinal), is positioned about 9 cables SE from the head of Main Breakwater. A second farm, closer inshore, is positioned about 2½ cables SE from the elbow of Main Breakwater.
Pilots Pilotage is compulsory and available 24 hours. The pilot boards 1 mile E of the head of Main Breakwater, as shown on the chart.
Tugs Three tugs are available, having the one 1300hp capacity and the other two 3500hp (35T Bollard Pull) and meet vessels outside the port area.
