The 10 Best Things to Do in Protaras, Cyprus

August 21, 2017 Alida England

Family-friendly and tranquil, Protaras is situated along the sandy coastline of Cyprus's Fig Tree Bay. The glorious beach is the main attraction—just be sure to keep a delightfully wary eye peeled for the legendary Ayia Napa Sea Monster. Giggle about the creepy creature over Cypriot specialties at one of the many open-air seafood restaurants in town.

Blue Lagoon

Reviewed By Brianngog - Plymouth, United Kingdom

Mother Nature has excelled herself with the Outstanding Cape Greco and to help Locals & Tourists alike enjoy a cooling down swim or just sit and admire the great views she has created the Blue Lagoon. Breathtaking crystal clear Blue Turquoise waters are just the start of something that words cannot really do justice.

Zenobia Wreck

Reviewed By Niamh M - London, United Kingdom

Dived the Zenobia Wreck with Cyprus Diving Adventures who were fab! The Zenobia was our first wreck dive and it will definitely not be our last. Visibility is amazing (about 25-30m) and the wreck is really quite breathtaking! Zenobia is an absolute must if you’re a diver!!

Cape Greco View Point

Reviewed By ANDYJ9750 - Wakefield, United Kingdom

This is an idyllic setting so near yet so far from the modern day excesses of aiya napa. The beauty of the peninsula was there for all to see including the cliffs with the wonderful natural arches, wild birds and flowers and, although it was January when we were there it was quite obvious what the Cape would be like during the springtime, a real place of beauty and peaceful sanctuary.

This beach was voted 13 of the best 25 Beaches in the world. It wouldn't make my top 1000 list. Terrible place don't bother visiting there are plenty of much nicer places to swim in Cyprus.

Konnos Bay

Reviewed By Vicky F - Liverpool, United Kingdom

We have been visiting Konnos for 12 years and it is a truly stunning area of Cyprus. Shallow warm water, clean beach, lifeguards, Water Sports, nice bar/cafe, newly built toilets and showers and a sun trap for those who want to bake! The only down side is that you have to arrive early to get a parking spot and sun loungers. In July August, you would have to be there by 10am to get anywhere near the place but it's worth it

Green Bay

Reviewed By Miniorange2014 - Devizes, United Kingdom

This beach was the closest to our apartment. Lovely clean sand (as is enjoyed throughout most of Protaras). Not quite as busy as Fig Tree Bay and there's loads of fish in the bay. My husband hired a mask and snorkel and saw the resident turtle.

Profitis Elias - Konnos Nature Trail

Reviewed By castle1_10 - Leeds, United Kingdom

A nice walk along the twisting track from Knosses bay kiosk to the small church on the headland or vice - versa, our re-visit wandering along the flower lined pathway with only the local lizards scurrying along for company,
still around 30-40 leisurely stroll in the morning sun.

Sea Caves

Reviewed By Brianngog - Plymouth, United Kingdom

We were on the Fourth Leg of our Annual Walk and The Sea Caves were our Finish Point..........and what a Place to stop awhile and take in those breathtaking views. The way Mother Nature has utilised the Wave Power of the Mediterranean to create this special area is a wonderous thing. If you are in the East of the Island, then Sea Caves must be on your list of places to visit.if you do not see this phenomenon then you are missing out.
