making sand castles and swimming in the sea and pool and You won’t have to worry that the “club 18 plus set” will be misbehaving around you as they will be at another resort.  You can still enjoy the shops, bars, and nightlife in Protaras and Paralimini and you can enjoy the restaurants and bars or sit and relax on the beach and just unwind in very pleasant surroundings.

The resort of Protaras is set on the south east coast of Cyprus in the Famagusta region and has wonderful shops and bars, night clubs and restaurants and beautiful sandy beaches.   But unlike it’s more frenetic neighbour Ayia Napa (approx 8 km away) it is more suited to families and couples looking for a quieter more relaxing stay.

It is very friendly and has some of the best beaches on the island, including the fabulous Fig Tree Bay.

If you get the chance then try undersea walking as  this looks like great fun I certainly can’t wait to try it for myself…

If you are a more mature Couple who are looking for a quieter more pleasant surrounding for your holiday then it is Perfect.   Imagine getting up in the morning and eating your breakfast out on the balcony looking out to sea. And then sitting by the pool and having a dip in the late afternoon sunshine after you have been to the beach most of the day.  You can then meander around the shops, bars and restaurants in the warm balmy evening air deciding where you fancy eating tonight.  If you are not tied to School Holidays then a Holiday in Protaras in Early or Late Season may be even more relaxing for you to enjoy.

Protaras is a purpose built town that caters perfectly for the British holidaymakers.  It is Just next to the village of Paralimni, and consists mainly of restaurants, nightclubs and shops surrounded by hotels and holiday apartments.  As with most of Cyprus it can get blisteringly hot in August which is fantastic for sun worshippers.  However, if you are more sensitive to the heat you may want to find plenty of shade or take your holiday at a different time of year.

Protaras is a great place to come for your next holiday. With it’s magnificent (Blue Flag) golden beach, which stretches for 16 km (10 miles) or thereabouts and which shelves gently into the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea.  This area is a great place for snorkelling and scuba diving.

There is also a vast range of watersports and you can usually hire equipment locally including paddle boats and jet ski’s, but make sure that your travel insurance covers you for jet ski hire before you go out on one, as they may not include insurance within the hire.

Further along the coast both ways you will find a choice of secluded coves and inlets if you are looking for more privacy.

And if you want to have an even more hectic nightlife, or shop for more designer style goods then Ayia Napa is just a taxi ride away.  So you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
