Located on the south-eastern coast of Cyprus, Protaras boasts fascinating history, clear blue waters and some of the country's most beautiful beaches. And with plenty of great activities for the whole family, Protaras holidays promise to be an ideal getaway in the sunny south Mediterranean.
Protaras is serviced by Larnaca Airport. It is easy to get from the airport to the town via local bus service or taxi. You may also wish to hire a car while you are in Cyprus, so you can get around independently. Cyprus has one of the best climates in Europe, with warm, sunny weather through most of the year. However, avoiding the summer months is a good idea, as this is when Protaras is the busiest. The time zone is GMT+2.
The best place to start on Protaras holidays is the famous Fig Tree Bay. Taking its name from the fig trees that line the beach, this destination is one of the most stunning beaches in Cyprus, with a sandy shore and beautiful clear water. Here, you can either relax the day away or try your hand at watersports, such as windsurfing and water-skiing. This is an idyllic, relaxed spot for the whole family, with shallow waters and lifeguards on duty throughout the day. For snorkelling, head to nearby nature park Cape Greco. Easy to get to via a relaxing boat trip, the area's clear waters are perfect for discovering the local sealife. For some interesting history, take a trip to Varosha, a once popular spot which turned into a ghost town following a Turkish invasion in the 1970s. Today, it's a fascinating place to explore, with historical details at every turn. So whatever you want to do on Protaras holidays, there is something for everybody.
