Find affordable luxury and crystal waters at Protaras villas

Near the southeastern tip of Cyprus lies the resort town of Protaras. It's popular with travellers, so you'll find numerous villas in Cyprus whether you're looking for luxury or affordability. Once you've settled into your Protaras villa and taken a look around town, you can relax and rejuvenate on the expansive sandy beaches and signature turquoise waters that you would expect from the Mediterranean. Restaurants and pubs are prevalent, but you'll find that most shops and eateries are suited for a family-friendly experience.

 
Things to do

Attractions near your holiday rental in Protaras

Whizzing along on wakeboards and soaking up the rays might be the mainstays of this family-friendly resort, but Protaras holiday rentals can also help you get a glimpse of the wilder side of Cyprus. The best way to discover it is by boat, which can take you down south to the rugged cliffs of the Cape Greco National Forest Park. There, arched rock formations and shimmering natural lagoons converge on sea caves – truly gorgeous. You can also stop by the Cape Greco Environmental Centre, to see marine life in the aquariums and learn all about the Med's underwater habitats.

Activities

Fun things to do near holiday homes in Protaras

"What isn't there to do?" might be a better question for Protaras, at least where families are concerned. As you wander the seaside promenade, you'll discover water sports of all kinds – snorkelling, sea kayaking, whizzing over the waves on a personal watercraft – you name it, it's on offer. They share beach space with regimented rows of deckchairs for those who simply want to laze. Boat excursions can be organised to see the wild coast and its lagoons, even swashbuckling pirate-themed ones for the kids. Scuba diving is big, as are glass-bottomed marine safaris, and adrenaline-pumping wakeboarding also makes an appearance.

Day trips

Day trips from Protaras holiday homes

Protaras is the perfect base camp to explore the wonders of Cyprus. Holiday rentals are just a short distance from places like Petra tou Romiou, a legendary rock formation off a pebbly beach, and Tombs of the Kings, a large, ancient necropolis with underground rock tombs. You could also visit Cape Greco, a headland with crystal-blue waters for snorkelling, and Akamas, a promontory with a nature reserve, lagoon and wildlife to see on safaris.

Weather

Local weather during your stay in Protaras holiday homes

Protaras all but goes into hibernation for half the year. Between November and March there's barely a taverna or water sports outfitter open along the sands of Fig Tree Bay. The reason? This is a seasonal resort through and through. Things don't kick off until May, in spring. That's when the mercury starts to creep up through the 20s and sunshine is totally guaranteed. The busiest time to seek out Protaras holiday rentals by the beach is between June and August – the summer. Others come in autumn months, like September, to dodge the crowds.

Natural features

Protaras spills off eastern Cyprus

Protaras is just about as far east in Cyprus as it's possible to go without crossing over to the untrodden Karpass Peninsula in the north. The town runs along a series of bays and beaches that go from Pernera to tiny Konnos Bay. For the most part, they are sandy and yellow, interspersed with the occasional pebbly stretch, or carved with an inlet of black-rock stone to form lagoons. The most handsome of the lot are hidden down in the Cape Greco National Forest Park. Explore that by boat to dive straight into crystal-clear waters, where turtles and reefs hide below.

Beaches
