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.
