"A laid-back coastal town, with gorgeous sandy beaches, azure waters and a hot summer climate, it is host to among other things, Europe’s third-best beach, the stunning Fig Tree Bay."
Protaras is a relaxed, family-friendly resort town in the east of Cyprus. It is renowned for its beautiful unspoilt beaches, which include Fig Tree Bay, rated as Europe’s third-best beach in 2011. It is also situated close to Cape Greco a large national park, that is covered in pine trees and is a great place to hike and explore, amongst beautiful natural scenery. It has a large number of good restaurants that provide both local and international cuisine and is just 12.2 km from Ayia Napa, a more young, hip and trendy holiday resort, allowing visitors to Protaras to enjoy the best of both worlds.
However, it is mother nature, which makes Protaras the ideal beach holiday location, from the treasures located beneath the sea’s surface, to the gorgeous beaches, craggy cliffs, dense forests. Overlooking the resort is the elegant Ayios Elias church, beautifully lit up at night, providing a romantic holiday setting, and the surrounding countryside is scattered with windmills which are used to keep the land fertile for potato growing.
