Protaras

Clear blue skies, sandy beaches and brilliant dive sites

Protaras is a lovely resort which is perfect for families and couples. There’s plenty to occupy all ages, with watersports, bars, restaurants, historical sites and excursions aplenty. A catamaran cruise or a sightseeing boat trip are both lovely ways to pass a sunny day.

This is also a popular destination with divers as it boasts some of the best dive sites in Cyprus. Why not sign up for a scuba diving course which will enable you to see the abundance of marine life the clear waters has to offer.

Without a doubt, Fig Tree Bay is one of the best beaches on the island. You can relax your days away on a sunbed, enjoy a few beach games with your family or take to the sparkling sea and enjoy a refreshing dip.

For a spot of sightseeing, take the steps up to the Church of Profitis Elias. This is a beautiful church and you’ll be treated to panoramic views over Protaras and the sea from the top of the hill.
