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.

                                                                                                      Lovely apartment, fantastic view, very clean, excellent place to stay. Easy access to sandy beaches.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      Would definitely stay here again. Clean inside and out, swimming pool lovely. Owner flexible with our request. We were here early April. Towels provided, beach towels too, umbrellas, hair dryer & straightener. Staff friendly. Great for morning walks by the sea to Fig Tree Bay ( to the left ) or small, quiet sandy beaches ( walk to the right ) that people wouldn't know unless exploring. Good snorkeling site just in front of apartment, just walk down. Fig tree bay full of restaurants and shops but some were still close because low season, Lidl 5 mins by car. Cape Greco & Konnos Bay 10mins drive. Protaras is quieter area than Ayia Napa which is 15-20mins by car ( drive through the coastal road passing Cape Greco National Park). We went Nissi beach, lovely and not busy in April. The boat trip to explore sea caves, blue lagoon and famagusta were not in operation yet ( shame ). They will start mid April however these places can be access by car/foot thru Cape Greco park. Overall, Cyprus' accommodations& restaurants are better value for money than Spain/Portugal/Italy and most of all the beaches and sea water is so so amazing and clear.
