A beach resort with a difference, Protaras is beautiful to behold but also fun to experience! Its stunning coastline, cliffs and caves give way to a lively social atmosphere amid unlimited relaxation and entertainment options.

Fondly referred to as ‘the land of the windmills’, the charming landscape of Protaras was dotted with quaint windmills before it expanded to become a favourite holiday destination. Today, its white sands and transparent crystal waters are what attract visitors to its main beaches at Fig Tree Bay and Konnos Bay.

Compact in size, most of the major tourist attractions are located within a short distance and the hub of its nightlife is the cobbled strip where traditional tavernas mingle with tourist establishments. The neighbouring villages of Agia Napa and Paralimni are holiday resorts in their own right and offer further opportunities to explore and enjoy.

Away from the animated vibe, a different Protaras emerges – an area abundant with natural beauty. Cliffs, caves and coves are yours to explore, and top diving and snorkelling sites reveal an underwater labyrinth where corals, marine life and turtles thrive.

The area’s defining attraction is Cape Greco, an eye-catching headland located between Protaras and Agia Napa with a protected nature park and breathtaking views of the sea.

The island’s sweet strawberries and juicy watermelons are grown mainly in Protaras.

For something out of the ordinary, Protaras and Ayia Napa are both home to Waterparks where children and adults can spend a day entertained by the original rides and activities. Children will also love the Ocean Aquarium which takes you on a magical journey through the rivers, lakes and oceans of the world where you will encounter 400 different species. Another museum worth visiting is the Marine Heritage Centre where everything and anything connected with marine life is displayed. Just outside Protaras, at Cavo Greco, is a National Forest Park of Cyprus where visitors can cycle and hike through the trails seeing breath-taking views of the sea as well as amazing sea caves. Furthermore, a 15km pedestrian route spans the entire length of the main coastal road in Protaras which is ideal for walkers and bikers.
  • Profitis Elias Steep stone-built steps lead to the chapel of Prophet Elias, built on an almost vertical granite hill with panoramic views of the resort.

Landmarks

  • Archaeological Sites and Cultural Monuments Many monasteries are found in the surrounding areas, but one of the most beautiful, and definitely worth a visit, is the Monastery of Ayia Napa found in the heart of Ayia Napa town. Originally built around a cave, where an icon of the Virgin Mary was found, it was later built up by the Venetians and includes a scenic aqueduct and charming central fountain. Additionally, in Protaras there is the little church of Prophet Elias up on a 100 metres high hill. There are 300 steps leading up to the church but the breath-taking panoramic views of Protaras, Cyprus and the sea are definitely worth the climb.
  • Beaches in Protaras Protaras is credited with having seas and beaches that will take your breath away. Fig Tree Bay, overlooked by Louis Nausicaa, is one of the most popular Protaras beaches due to its crystal clear waters, organized amenities and numerous restaurants and cafes. Another more secluded Protaras beach is Konnos Bay located in a small alcove surrounded by trees and greenery. Sit at the cafe in amongst the trees and allow yourself to be enveloped into the spectacular scenery.
