Protaras - A beautiful seaside resort on the east coast of Cyprus

The seaside resort of Protaras is just a few minute's drive from the town of Paralimni.
Protaras is one of the most beautiful seaside resorts in Cyprus. Very popular with both visitors and locals for its beautiful sandy beaches, it can get quite busy at the week-ends. Of its beaches, Fig Tree Bay beach is the most notable, regarded as probably one of the best in Cyprus.

Protaras - The resort of many beaches

Another lovely beach in Protaras is Pernera Beach which is just to the north of Fig Tree Bay, whilst to the south of the village is Konnos Bay, a fabulous beach in a small cove on the fringes of Cape Greco, the rocky south-eastern end of Cyprus where, if diving and snorkeling is more to your liking, the shoreline that has some outstanding rock formations and sea caves offers a multitude of opportunities and continues round almost all the way to Ayia Napa.

Protected from the wind, the sea is always calm and crystal clear, and with the natural environment (that has very strict government controls), along with the hilly slopes that are covered in lush greenery throughout the year, the ecological charm and character of the area has not been adulterated, thereby attracting local and foreign tourists.

Protaras; a part of Paralimni town

Protaras is part of the town of Paralimni which has also become the main municipality in the free Famagusta region. It has an excellent new road connection with all the main towns and is only three quarters of an hour drive from Larnaca International Airport at the most.

The white-washed town of Protaras creates a much calmer resort than the noisier, livelier Ayia Napa which is only ten minutes away, and is especially known for the place to try freshly grilled fish in the open-air seafood restaurants.

The village boasts an Ocean Aquarium with over a thousand species of sea life that can be viewed providing a memorable aquatic experience. This is in addition to the well renowned breathtaking view of the Ayios Elias Church that can be admired.

Ayia Thekla Village

Leaving Protaras and traveling along the coast past Cape Greco, you will reach Ayia Napa after a few miles.
A few more miles beyond this busy little resort lies the sleepy village of Ayia Thekla, a small coastal settlement which has recently found favour with a great many British expatriates looking for properties in Cyprus. The village itself has few basic amenities, a fact which is more than compensated for by the natural scenery surrounding the community and the stretch of uncrowded sandy beach, sheltered from the waves by a small islet just off-shore.
This charming little village is ideal for those of you looking to escape the mainstream crowd.
