Protaras (Greek: Πρωταράς;) is a predominantly tourist resort which comes under the administrative jurisdiction of Paralimni Municipality in Cyprus.
Protaras is also referred to as “the land of windmills”, maintaining the nostalgic quality of the past.
Protaras has clear sky-blue waters and sandy beaches, the most well-known of which is Fig Tree Bay. Building on the success of Ayia Napa, located about 10 km southwest, it has expanded into a modern holiday resort of considerable size with tens of high capacity hotels, hotel apartments, villas, restaurants, pubs and associated facilities. Being quieter than Ayia Napa and having less of a club scene, it has a reputation of catering more for family and Cypriot tourism. Cape Greco is a 10-minute drive from the center of Protaras, and is considered one of the most beautiful places on the island.
