Protaras

Protaras is a modern, purpose-built resort located 14km east of Ayia Napa, and is particularly popular with water sports aficionados. The resort stretches over 6km along the sandy-beached coastline, interspersed with rocky coves. The resort has two main focal points - Fig Tree Bay and Pernera Beach - where the majority of hotels and bars are to be found.

Protaras attracts families and couples wanting to enjoy the stunning beaches of the eastern coastline but without the frenetic nightlife of neighbouring Ayia Napa!

With some of the best water sports on the island, holidays in Protaras are definitely for those who like to make a splash. That being said, it's considerably quieter than its fun-loving neighbour, Ayia Napa. So, it's a good choice for families and couples looking for uninterrupted relaxation.

It's a purpose built resort that's fairly compact, with most of the hotels, bars and restaurants scattered around Fig Tree Bay and Pernera Beach. There's also a wide range of restaurants to choose from, whether it's a traditional taverna and some bouzouki music that gets you going, or you prefer belting out a soul song in a karaoke bar, you won't be disappointed.

This is one of the most easterly resorts in South Cyprus. But holidays in Protaras don't mean being out on a limb. There are regular bus services not only to Ayia Napa, but also to Paralimni and Larnaca, where you can soak up some history and have a large dose of retail therapy.
