Pretty Protaras Cyprus

The resort of Protaras is an amazing tourist resort with many beautiful beaches and pleasant surroundings. Is one of the best on the East Coast of Cyprus.

Is close to Paralimni and the ghost town of Famagusta, now under illegal Turkish military occupation since July 1974.

There are many beaches around the area with crystal-clear water and opportunities for wind surfing, diving, and many other water sports.

With its relaxed atmosphere, beautiful beaches and pleasant surroundings.

Protaras is known for having hot summers and mild winters, making it an ideal destination all year round though the real heat is in the summer when temperatures border on 40°C.

Exceptional beauty.

No wonder why Protaras is so popular among travellers.

Beautiful views everywhere.

A fantastic new walkway along the seaside offers opportunities for endless walks.

The new walkway constracted and funded by a Europena project.

The deep blue colour of the sea water together with the evergreen inland make a fantastic picture.

A lovely beach of exceptional beauty.

The beaches in the area are among the cleanest and safest in the Mediterranean.

Children love the games in the beach.

Protaras has the most beautiful clear turquoise seas in the Mediterranean.

Summer, it starts when I see you.

Protaras attracts thousands of tourists world-wide on account of its fun-loving outlook by night and its sandy Mediterranean beaches by day.

Πρωταράς, πρώτος σε ομορφιές

Η παραθαλάσσια περιοχή του Πρωταρά είναι ένας καταπληκτικός τόπος με πολλές όμορφες αμμουδιές και φυσική ομορφιά που το περιβάλλει.

Είναι ένα από τα ωραιότερα τουριστικά θέρετρα στην Ανατολική ακτή της Κύπρου.

Ανήκει στο Δήμο Παραλιμνίου και την ερειπωμένη πόλη της Αμμοχώστου, η οποία ελέγχεται παράνομα από τον Τουρκικό κατοχικό στρατό από τον Ιούλιο του 1974.

Ο Πρωταράς είναι ίσως ο πιο δημοφιλής τουριστικός προορισμός για οικογένειες με παιδιά.

Πανέμορφες εικόνες παντού.

Μέρος ξενοδοχειακού συγκροτήματος.

Θέα από το κήπο ξενοδοχείου.

Οι παραλίες στην περιοχή είναι από τις καθαρότερες και πιο ασφαλείς στη Μεσόγειο.

Δαντελωτοί βράχοι γεμάτοι γοητεία.

Ο νέος πεζόδρομος δίπλα ακριβώς από τη θάλασσα.

Ο εξαιρετικός πεζόδρομος κατασκευάστηκε με προδιαγραφές και χρηματοδότηση της Ε.Ε.

Καταγάλανα, προκλητικά νερά.

Ειδυλλιακές εικόνες απείρου κάλλους.

Συνδιασμοί χρωμάτων που ζαλίζουν.

Υπερήφανη θάλασσα γεμάτη μυστήριο.

Ο όμορφος γαϊδουράκος ψάχνει για τη Μανταλένα του...

Ατέλειωτοι περίπατοι κατά μήκος της όμορφης παραλίας.

Μικροί κόλποι για ήσυχους ταξιδιώτες.

Μεγαλύτεροι κόλποι για ανήσυχους ταξιδιώτες.

Στης Θάλασσας την αλμύρα να αγναντεύεις το απέραντο γαλάζιο.

Έγια μόλα, έγια λέσα, αχ βρε θάλασσα μπαμπέσα.

Αχ, θάλασσα αφέντρα μου θάλασσα αφρισμένη.

Ξεχύνεται κι η σκέψη μου πέφτει μέσα στο κύμα.

Θάλασσα, μάνα, αλμύρα μου εσύ, γαλάζια μοίρα.

Όνειρα τρελά που πετούν στο κύμα πάνω φτάνουν στην καρδιά και τα νιάτα μας ξυπνάνε όνειρα τρελά.

Θάλασσα πλατιά σ' αγαπώ γιατί μου μοιάζεις θάλασσα βαθιά μια στιγμή δεν ησυχάζεις.

Οι όμορφες παρουσίες με τα ωραία χαμόγελα του καλοκαιριού.

Άντρος και Ρίτα έπί ποδός στον πεζόδρομο.

Ο Κώστας αριστερά με ένα φίλο.

Το ζεύγος των γιατρών Περικλής και Ελένη με το χαριτωμένο σκυλάκι τους.

Ο Νϊκος με τη μητέρα του Αναστασία.

Οι παλιοί φίλοι Ιωσήφ και Κώστας.

Ο Άθως με τα αγαπημένα του, πανέμορφα σκυλάκια.

Mediterranean kiwi said...

i can understand why northern europeans are dying to come to places like this one - theyh lack warm seas, good weather and an outdoor lifestyle
these resorts are similar to the ones in crete

@ Mediterranean kiwi. Crete like Cyprus belong to same region of Mediterranean Sea and therefore they both have the same beauties!
