What will you do in Protaras? 

Plenty of chances to relax and unwind 

When you’re planning a getaway with friends, it’s fun to put together a plan of all the things you’d love to do when you get here. First and foremost, you simply must visit some of the amazing beaches that Protaras is famous for. Relax on the pristine white sand, and relax, as you gaze out at the breath-taking sea view across the crystal-clear waters. Take time out to watch the world go by from a beach bar or café, and then spend your evening enjoying delicious Cypriot cuisine, and sipping cocktails at one of the many relaxed beach bars. They say the sunsets in Cyprus are some of the best in the world, and what better way to enjoy watching those magical hues of gold and red than with good friends in a beautiful setting? 


Enjoy some amazing retail therapy 

Be sure to leave room in your suitcase. From quirky handmade arts and crafts to great value designer labels, you can shop ‘til you drop in Protaras. You’ll find local speciality food and drink, fashion boutiques, and some stylish jewellery stores. So why not treat yourself? Visit in the summer months and you’ll find most shops open late into the evening, so you can browse the stores at your leisure when the heat of the midday sun has dissipated.  

Discover the rich history and culture of Cyprus 

Historically, Cyprus is a fascinating island, so it’s well worth tearing yourself away from the beaches and heading out to explore off the beaten track. You’ll find some of the most beautiful churches in Cyprus right here in Protaras, and on the way, you’ll be able to enjoy some spectacular views. For a wonderful photo opportunity, a trip up to Profitis Illias is well worth it. This pretty little church sits right at the top of a hill, offering views across all of Protaras. Can you spot your holiday villa from up here?
