Glorious sandy beaches, crystal-clear water and a lush natural park make the Protaras resort in south-east Cyprus a tranquil destination. Wellbeing is the priority here, with long sunny days spent swimming, cycling or diving in the gorgeous turquoise sea. Hidden coves, ancient Hellenistic ruins, and acres of protected pine forest are all within easy reach of the Leonardo Crystal Cove Hotel & Spa. This luxury adults-only Protaras beach hotel faces onto the Mediterranean Sea and is the perfect base to explore this naturally beautiful region.
Get your bearings
The beaches of Cyprus are among the best in the world and the sea is warm for most of the year. Fig Tree Bay is famous for its soft powdery sand and tranquil waters, and Konnos Bay is another favourite, a natural beach sheltered by headlands with clear, warm water that is ideal for snorkelling. More serious divers can experience the delight of swimming among turtles and rays over the reef off Cape Greco.
With lush vegetation, fragrant pine trees and colourful spring wildflowers, the landscape around Protaras is just as appealing as its shoreline. Cape Greco National Forest Park is accessible by land or by water, and has rugged headlands with spectacular rock formations and caves at sea level. The Konnos Nature Trail can also be enjoyed on foot or by mountain bike, offering brilliant views of the dramatic coastline below. Take a local horseback tour, or relax in the tropical gardens at Ocean Aquarium, among the turtles and penguins.
While you’re there
Pop by the pretty hilltop church of St Elias, and see the ribboned remembrance trees, or take a day trip to the port city of Famagusta to admire Othello Castle, a striking piece of Venetian military design. For a flavour of ancient history, travel a little further afield: the intricately painted Byzantine churches of Troodos and the Neolithic settlement of Choirokoitia are two UNESCO World Heritage Sites towards the centre of the island.
