There are many sea caves along the Protaras coastline that are excellent for those who wish to explore. There are a variety of unique rock formations, arches and hidden coves waiitng to be photographed. These can serve as a retreat for those wanting to avoid crowded beaches or enjoy swimming without the water-sports.
Boat trips to the protected nature park of Cape Greko are available daily during the summer months. Similarly, the deserted 'ghost town' of Varosha is a popular destination for boat trips. The town was evacuated in a hurry by Cypriot citizens in 1974 due to the Turkish invasion and has been sealed off by the Turkish army ever since. It's houses, offices and shops are still fully furnished and equipped as if frozen in time.
Hiking is still a popular activity in Protatas as the rugged coastline towards Cape Greko remains mostly untouched. There are a several nature trails from Protaras, the longer of the two is 8.5km long, (approx. 3 hours). The trail begins at the limestone chapel of Profitis Elias and the chapel’s heady location on the summit of an enormous rock offers hikers breathtaking views of Protaras. The trail then moves south along the coast ending at Konnos beach.
The is a large selection of cafes, restaurants and bars in Protaras and alongside the various beaches. The cuisine generally ranges from traditional Greek-Cypriot to international menus of Chinese and Mexican. The main Protaras Avenue is lined with restaurants competing for business from hungry holidaymakers. There are also the regular fast-food establishments such as McDonalds and a few restaurants that specialise in more exotic styles of cooking like Japanese.
For an authentic taste of Cyprus, try visiting a village meze (restaurant with locally inspired menu). A meze dish is designed to be shared by two people and consists of a series of small courses similar in size to Spanish tapas.
