Located along Cyprus's lovely Fig Tree Bay, Protaras is a family-friendly resort town with beautiful beaches and plenty of recreational activities.
We've included these beaches for you: Landa Beach and Potami Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Scuba & Snorkeling and Kapparris Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Famagusta (Famagusta City Walls & Salamis Ancient City). It doesn't end there: take some stellar pictures from Sea Caves and make a trip to Cape Greco National Forest Park.
