Protaras is amongst Cyprus' most popular holiday destinations, catering for thousands of tourists every year.
Far less raucous than the nearby resort of Ayia Napa, Protaras attracts families and couples keen to experience the area's fabulous beaches, quality accommodation, varied nightlife and wide variety of restaurants.
Purpose built for holidaymakers, the resort is reasonably compact and ideally located on the eastern coastline of Cyprus, with a backdrop of around four miles of golden sands and turquoise waters.
While most hotels, bars and restaurants are located in the areas of Fig Tree Bay and Pernera Beach, you're more than likely to be within walking distance of the sea and a beach wherever you stay.
Whether you prefer a relaxing holiday soaking up the sun, or an activity filled break full of unforgettable experiences, Protaras is an excellent choice.
There are plenty of beauty spots to explore at your own pace, amongst the best of which are the rugged coves of Cape Greko or the quaint church at Pernera beach.
Thrill seekers can head to any number of well maintained local beaches and try their hand at the various water sports on offer, be it kayaking, parasailing, jet-skiing, motor boating or wind surfing.
