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.
The coves and beaches of Cape Greco are a favourite spot for a range of sports from diving to cycling and hiking.
The Sea Caves are the highlight of the Protaras coastline. These unique rock formations range from small crevices to bigger caves that can be explored.
Steep stone-built steps lead to the chapel of Prophet Elias, built on an almost vertical granite hill with panoramic views of the resort. There are 300 steps leading up to the church but the breath-taking panoramic views of Protaras, Cyprus and the sea are worth the climb.
Many monasteries are found in the surrounding areas, but one of the most beautiful, and 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.
Protaras is credited with having seas and beaches that will take your breath away. Fig Tree Bay 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.
