Protaras is a purpose-built, family-friendly resort on Cyprus’ south east coast. It’s sprung up around one of the island’s best beaches, Fig Tree Bay, where you’ll find soft, golden sand that’s ideal for beach games or relaxing in the sun. There’s also a wide choice of water sports available if you’re feeling active and a water park and aquarium to keep the kids occupied. As you’d expect from a modern resort, there’s plenty of excellent restaurants, bars and cafés serving up local and international cuisine to cater to all tastes on your Protaras holiday. If you’re here with your friends and looking for something even wilder, party-town Ayia Napa is just around the headland.
Things to do
Picture-perfect Blue Flag beaches, like Fig Tree Bay, draw beach lovers in droves to this corner of Cyprus. There’s also a fantastic choice of water sports on offer, or you can take a sailing trip to explore even further out to sea, including trips to the protected nature park area of Cape Greco. Back on (almost)-dry land, you’ll find Water World, considered by many to be the island’s best waterpark. It’s just a short 15-minute bus trip from the town and always a big hit with the kids (of all ages!). Feeling brave? On Protaras holidays you can get up close and personal with crocodiles, penguins, and exotic fish at the Ocean Aquarium. If you prefer your nature even wilder, there’s a network of trails for cyclists and walkers taking in dramatic views and unspoiled terrain.
Beach lovers enjoy the high temperatures of June and July and an average of 12 hours sunshine a day.
