Ormideia is a village in Larnaca District in south-eastern Cyprus.

It is one of the four exclaves surrounded by the Eastern Sovereign Base Area of Akrotiri and Dhekelia, a British Overseas Territory administered as a Sovereign Base Area.

The others are the village of Xylotymvou and Dhekelia Power Station. It is administered by the Republic of Cyprus. Its population in 2011 was 4,189.

The annual Pomegranate Festival is well attended event.

In 2020, Ormideia community council  declared the village a 5G free zone within its administrative boundaries. “Based on research and data obtained, it turns out that the new generation of mobile networks emits a strong degree of radiation with potentially long-lasting and detrimental effects on the health of its citizens,” the community council said in a written statement published in September that year.

Archaeological objects found in the village are displayed at various museums. A stele with the “syllabic funerary inscription Panroses” is on display at the Larnaca District Archaeological Museum.
