Protaras is beautiful to behold and fun to experience.
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.
