Protaras and Paralimni Paralimni is the main town and the temporary administrative centre of the district of Famagusta. Protaras its the main beach resort of Paralimni and its well known for its magnificent golden sandy beaches. As a contrast of Ayia Napa which lies few kilometres further, Protaras is a quieter resort and as such may be more suites for couples and families.

Protaras the tourist area of Paralimni, is one of the loveliest areas of Cyprus extending along the eastern coast of Paralimni. To be precise, Protaras is the name of a picturesque bay with crystal-clear waters, white-gold sand and a small island about 100 metres from the beach. This bay is known to foreigners as the Fig Tree Bay. In recent years, due to its rapid development, the whole tourist area of Paralimni Municipality has been called Protaras. This extends for approximately 10 kilometres beginning in the north in the Kapparis locality and ending in the south in the Konnos area. Other areas along this coast are the Ayia Triada bay, Vrysoythkia bay, Pernera bay, the islands and others. This area was, and still is, the most productive region of Paralimni. Hundreds of windmills there testify to the productivity of the past half century whilst affording quaint, nostalgic as well as tranquil beauty to the landscape of today. On the magnificent beaches, attractive centres have been in operation for many years, opening only during the summer months and drawing quite a large clientele from Famagusta and the villages nearby. The situation continued until 1974 when the Turkish invasion caused a stagnation in the area which lasted for a number of years. The rapid development began around 1977 when the first hotels and tourists apartments began to make this appearance. A healthy construction boom began and continued to the present time. Now, many Nicosians have built their country homes here and many others have purchased apartments in large complexes, many of which are being built annually .

Protaras beaches Protaras offers endless sandy beaches, secluded coves, wide bays and crystal clear Mediterranean waters.
