Protaras is a traditional fish village, ideal for an easy-going beach break. Protaras ticks all the boxes and captures all tastes when it comes to family vacation. A magnificent beach shore, beautifully manicured with a wide seaside pedestrian promenade that wriggles its way up the coast all the way to Pernera set up a perfect scenery for an easygoing beach break. All these are in fact what makes Protaras such a lovely choice.

Modern-day Protaras is a well-known resort under the municipal government of Paralimni. Protaras is often called the Land of Windmills as it is home to hundreds of them lending the area a pastoral beauty and instant recognizability, maintaining at the same time a nostalgic feel of the past. In between sunbathing, swimming and strolling, head to Profitis Elias Church for the history and the view. Although modern, this church was built in the Byzantine style to replace a small room that was being used as a church. It is well worth the walk to the church and the climb to the top (about 100 steep stone steps) as from the top there is a breathtaking view of Protaras and the surrounding countryside.

Take a picnic! For those not used to the extreme heat of Cyprus, the hike might be taxing. Find out when the church closes and plan your climb for late afternoon when temperatures drop. In the evening the church is lit up. Sunsets from there are magnificent. At night enjoy the colorful flaming water-jets of the Magic Dancing Waters show. This laser/volcano/water show is set to music and lasts about one hour. It is a hit with families. You are allowed to use your camera and take video so that you can show folks back home the impressive spectacle! Food is available for purchase but both meals and drinks can be expensive. It is worth getting there early to get good seats.
