Getting away from it all, to relax and unwind is so incredibly beneficial for both our physical and mental wellbeing.

Our modern lives can be so hectic, with work, family commitments, and the daily chores that seem to be endless. It’s wonderful to step outside of our routine once in a while and treat ourselves to an indulgent escape. Time to rest our weary bodies, and refresh our minds, letting go of the stress that can build up over time.

Protaras is a wonderful destination for a getaway. There’s plenty to do, sights to see and activities available, all under the gorgeous Cyprus sunshine, but you’ll also find a wealth of more secluded spots, hidden from plain view, away from the crowds. Discovering these gems is such a thrill, finding perfect places to feel secluded and peaceful, an ideal backdrop for a romantic and intimate holiday.

Some breath-taking and peaceful spots to visit are…

Sirena Bay

Hidden away, and not obvious from the road, Sirena Bay is often overlooked in favour of the more lively beaches.  If you’re looking for a peaceful and stunningly beautiful beach to while away the hours, then Sirena Bay certainly fits the bill. Its’ unspoilt natural beauty makes you feel as if you’re in a romantic movie. The water is crystal clear making it a great spot for snorkelling and despite being a quiet and secluded beach, you’ll find all the amenities you need, with sun loungers to hire, and a great beach bar.

Cape Greco

Perhaps not so much hidden, but certainly spacious enough so you’ll certainly never feel crowded, Cape Greco is a protected nature park with so much to see. Take to the nature trails and you’ll be rewarded with some amazing panoramic views of the sea and the sea caves. You can take some stunning photographs here, and don’t forget to visit the quaint chapels. Being further away from the main Protaras area, the beaches here tend to be fairly quiet too.

Glyki Nero Beach

Glyki Nero Beach is very wide, so it never feels too busy. With bars, restaurants and toilet facilities close by, there’s everything you need for a wonderful day at the beach. It’s a popular beach for watersports, so whether you want to relax and sunbathe, or take to the water and get active, the choice is yours. While you’re in the area, a visit to Lovers Bridge is a must, if only to capture that iconic holiday photograph to share with friends and family back home.
