Stay in a holiday villa in the south of Cyprus
Secluded, sandy beaches, a rugged beautiful coastline and an array of activities for the whole family, are just some of the attractions which allure visitors to the developing resort of Protaras, every year. Situated just off the east coast of Cyprus, this delightful town is a mere 80-minute drive from Larnaca International Airport. Protaras belongs to South Cyprus. As the resort is still in its infancy, the apartments in Protaras are largely newly built, spacious and well equipped, providing visitors the best accommodation in the region.
Enjoy the diverse landscape of Protaras from your holiday villa
Just a short distance from the apartments in Protaras, on the outskirts of the resort, lies the Church of Ayios Ilias. This pretty church was constructed on the top of a craggy rock and is well worth the climb for the panoramic views of Protaras and the surrounding areas. Take a trip to the Moonshine Ranch and explore the region from horseback. After an exhilarating ride, round off your morning with lunch and an afternoon tipple, before returning to one of the many villas in the Protaras resort. Another nice destination for a trip is the nearby holiday resort Paralimi. The towns Elea and Famagusta can also be reached within a one-hour drive.
Some of Protaras's villas also overlook the sea and beaches in the region famously beautiful. Fig Tree Bay, off the main Protaras strip, is no exception. Powdery white sands and safe, crystalline, waters are ideal for a range of water sports including water skiing, scuba diving and windsurfing. Enthusiasts will also find the myriad of shops offering quality water sports equipment of particular interest. After sunset Protaras comes alive and the resort transforms into a hive of activity. Neon lights illuminate the bars and restaurants enticing tourists out from their Protaras villas to sample the local cuisine and selection of unusual cocktails.
