Why go to Protaras

It’s just a 15-minute drive from the party resort of Ayia Napa, but Protaras is a world away. Snaking along the eastern coast of Cyprus, Protaras is the family-friendly version of its bigger neighbour – a laid-back place of long, sandy beaches, intimate coves and more than enough to keep the children happily busy.

Families are a big focus at Protaras, with plenty of amusement arcades, playgrounds and mini golf, as well as kids’ menus in the restaurants. For a treat before bedtime, take the family to the Magic Dancing Waters, a dazzling show of dancing waters, lasers and flames set to a lively soundtrack.

Holidays in Protaras centre on the huge beach at Fig Tree Bay, where the range of watersports covers everything from wakeboarding to jet skiing. Stick the whole family on a banana boat or a pedalo, or explore the beach at a gentle pace on a paddleboard or in a kayak. If you’re looking for thrills, try parasailing – it’s unforgettable.

Follow the coast northwards to find more beaches in the neighbouring village of Pernera. Here, the beach lies within a protective curve of sand that keeps the waters calm – an ideal spot for young children. At Kalamies Beach just beyond, golden sands lie in a deep harbour crowned by the pretty sight of the blue and white church of St Nicholas.

Inland is the town of Paralimni, whose large main square is dominated by three churches all vying for attention. If you fancy a break from the beach, Paralimni has a broad range of shops as well as an amphitheatre where concerts and shows are held throughout the main holiday season.

For cheap holidays to Protaras, simply hop on one of the regular direct flights to Larnaca airport, which is less than an hour’s drive to the resort. If you want to explore further, many of the beaches in Protaras offer boat trips that make their way along the coast, offering everything from lunch and snorkelling trips to romantic sunset cruises.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
