Protaras, is a predominantly tourist resort close to Ayia Napa. In ancient times, where now Protaras seems to be located stood the old city-state of Leukolla. Historically the resort was known as Fig Tree Bay, but today back-to-back
hotels line the waterfront and there isn’t a single fig tree in sight.
Fortunately the sea has retained its glassy clarity and Protoras’ beaches are among the best on the island.
Protaras has lovely, sandy beaches with clear sky-blue waters and the most well known beach in the area is Fig Tree Bay. Protaras is also referred to as "the land of windmills" maintaining the nostalgic quality of the past.
It has exploded into a resort of considerable size with tens of high capacity hotels, hotel apartments, villas, restaurants, pubs and all sorts of facilities a modern holiday resort ought to have.
At night Protaras main street erupts into a noisy sound and light show as the many disco/bars, pubs and clubs turn up the volume to draw in the crowds. Many establishments offer live entertainment or karaoke and the discos feature
English DJs and laser lights.
There are only a few nightclubs, and serious all-night clubbers prefer to travel to Ayia Napa for the evening.
The main beach at Protaras offers a vast range of water sports opportunities and equipment hire, from paddle boats to jet skis. The resort caters particularly well for children, most of the hotels and apartment complexes offering
excellent Kid's Clubs.
There are two exciting water parks nearby at Ayia Napa, which provide thrills and spills for all ages. Most visitors enjoy a stroll along the clifftops of the coastline, particularly in spring when the landscape is covered in wild flowers.
The more energetic can hike up the steep crag on the outskirts of the resort to the Ayios Ilias Church from where there is a spectacular view. Local operators offer several day trips, sea cruises and excursions to places of interest, like into the Troodos Mountains or to explore the city of Nicosia.
