Make a holiday rental, home or villa in Protaras Cyprus your home away from home

Protaras, on Cyprus’ south east coast is a small, family friendly resort in the world famous Fig Tree Bay, where the beaches are the envy of most other Cyprus beach resorts. The town was developed to meet the needs of British tourists, with fabulous restaurants, bars and shops. A Cyprus villa in Protaras guarantees a magnificent beach holiday, on not only the 10km blue flag beach on which the town sits, but also the secluded coves of the rest of the coastline.

Places to holiday in Protaras, Cyprus

The busy resort of Ayia Napa is very close to all the Cyprus villas to rent in Protaras, where duty free shopping and exuberant nightlife can be found.

The fascinating city of Famagusta is also very close to all Protaras villas, where you can not only see some beautiful examples of medieval architecture, but also see the staggering ghost town of old Famagusta, which was deserted overnight due to Turkish military occupation.

Things to do on in Protaras, Cyprus

The magnificent beach of Fig Tree Bay slopes gently into the crystal Mediterranean Sea, and for sun-worshipers, there is very little reason to look further round the coast.

Along Protaras’ main beach can be found provisions for a vast range of water sports and equipment hire, including windsurfing, paddle boats, jet skis and scuba diving. Protaras is known as the resort with the best diving in Cyprus, as the fine beaches are surrounded by caves, canyons, reefs and the wreck of the Zenobia. Exotic and colourful fish are everywhere, and you can often see barracuda, needle fish and much more.

There are numerous walks along the cliffs and into the Troodos Mountains offering spectacular views of the coast, and in spring, the wild flora of Cyprus. A walk to the Church of Ayios Ilias is well worth the exercise, as this charming little church sits high above the town looking majestically over the coast.

There are also a huge range of boat trips from Protaras. Some take you further up the coast to the ghost town of Famagusta, or towards Cape Greco in the West where there are many trails, dive sites and hidden cove beaches, while others celebrate the fantastic deep sea fishing off Cyprus.

The nightlife of Protaras is good, with many bars and restaurants becoming louder as the night progresses, but the resort of Ayia Napa is so close that most of the more rowdy bars have not amassed in Protaras, leaving it as a more relaxed destination.

Weather in Protaras, Cyprus

Cyprus’ Mediterranean climate blesses Protaras with long hot summers averaging around 27°C until late September, and extremely mild winters staying above 10°C.

Flights to Protaras, Cyprus

Protaras is under an hours drive from Larnaca international Airport (LCA), and there are regular buses connecting the airport to the holiday villas in Protaras.

                        Exactly what we needed

                        5 of 5
                        Perfectly located just far enough away from all the tourist traps but close enough to be convenient. Just a short walk from some great restaurants and beaches and a short drive from anywhere else you'd want to go. The apartment itself is ideal for a couple or small group of people wanting the freedom that only a self catering holiday can give. A good sized kitchen, plenty of storage, ample sleeping, and direct access to a lovely, refreshing pool make this place perfect for most people's needs. We will definitely be returning.
