What’s interesting in Protaras beaches

Protaras Louma beach - Cyprus

Louma Beach

Protaras is a popular holiday spot for Cypriots. The resort is a little bit crowded but with excellent clean, sandy beaches, and clear water quickly warmed up by the sun. Numerous natural coves prevent the formation of large waves, which means you can relax with nature and enjoy a swim.

From May to October the weather throughout Cyprus is beautiful, and although in May and June the water is still fresh, July, August and especially September and October have the best weather for a beach holiday: quiet, warm and sunny.

The water is best in the early autumn when it’s the warmest and the beaches are less crowded.

There are several hotels you can stay in situated right on the seafront.

If you enjoy a vibrant nightlife and want to rent a car or buggy (the most popular and inexpensive form of transport in this region of Cyprus), it’s better to stay in a hotel in Ayia Napa. It’s very close, so a trip to Protaras and Cavo Greco won’t take long and will give you enough time to admire the quaint local scenery.

Sea caves in Protaras (Cavo Greco)

Cavo Greco

Besides the beaches, tourists love Protaras’ majestic “marine palaces” – a chain of beautiful caves and grottos stretching along the coast of the natural national park “Cavo Greco”.

Either from the shore or on board one of the many boats that sail here, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the grand stone monuments, framed by crystal clear turquoise waters.

Having admired the beauty of the nature reserve, go diving or just snorkel and admire the colourful fish.

You can also enjoy fishing, and there is no licence is required to fish from the shore in Cyprus.

You can also take advantage of the landscape to take beautiful photos. There is the snow-white chapel of Agia Anargyroi, the natural stone bridge hanging over the cliffs and sea, and miraculous stone sculptures along the coast.

 

Cavo GrecoAdvice

If your goal is to go snorkelling and explore the caves and grottos, it’s better to come in the morning. If you want to take photos then the evening is preferable, closer to sunset when the light is best.

Think carefully about the clothes and, of course, shoes to protect your feet from sharp rocks. Bring a hat, sunglasses and cream, as well as drinking water.
