Protaras is a predominantly tourist resort which comes under the administrative jurisdiction
of Paralimni Municipality in Cyprus.
Protaras has clear sky-blue waters and sandy beaches, the most well-known of which is Fig
Tree Bay less than 150 m from the Melini Hotel Suites. 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.
