The Famagusta region
The Paralimni area has several small sandy coves that vary from busy to isolated. If you find tavernas, jet skis or other people irritating, just take your towel and wander along for a few minutes and you'll find a secluded bay.
Extending from the Constantinos the Great beach, southward to Fig Tree Bay, this stretch of coast offers wonderful golden sands.
Safe, shallow water makes it especially suited to families with children, but everyone will find something to do along this coast, with plenty of water sports, seafront bars, and cafes. The shops and tavernas of Protaras are only a short walk away.
Protaras itself has many attractions but most of all boasts with more than 10 miles of sandy beaches, perfect for any family getaway.
Things to do: Protaras is by far one of the most popular destinations in Cyprus! It is renowned for its lovely beaches and clear azure seas. The town is situated on the narrow coastal plain that stretches from Cape Greko up to the east regional town of Paralimni. The location is probably the site of the ancient city-port Lefkolla where a multitude of Greko-Roman artefacts have been found.
The modern town of Protaras, though quieter than Agai Napa, is full of quality restaurants, shops and bars.Large, shallow, sandy beaches boasting amenities such as water sports and on-beach cafes and restaurants provide for an Mediterranean experience in the small town of Pernera Bay. The coastal roads originating from Protaras offers excellent pedestrian/cycle route which provides easy access to beaches in that area.
Attractions: The Prophet Elias Church is a must see when visiting Protaras since it is well renowned for its spectacular views. It is a small chapel built on a rocky outcrop. The church was recently rebuilt in 1984, but was erected on the foundations of a much older ruin. There are 153 steps up the hill, but it is well worth it!
There are two small fishing havens, one at Pernera and the other closer to Paralimni. These are protected by limestone breakwaters and are home to small fleets of brightly coloured fishing boats.
The rocky coastline of Agia Napa consist's of a series of small headlands and semicircular inlets up to Cape Greko, about 4 miles from the town. The area is a designated National Forest Reserve and there are several interesting nature trails and a picnic site in the area. The natural vegetation of the Cape consists of wild thyme, carob trees, juniper, and thorny gorse.
The views are incredibly impressive, as are the rock formations and marine terraces of the Cape. The Cape is home to the ruins of the temple (dedicated to the Goddess of love, Aphrodite).
The Palaces (original rock formation sculpted by the sea over a long period of time) offers an excellent location for swimmers. It is a spectacular diving location. Swimmers can dive off the rocks into the crystal clear water.

We booked an 11 night stay for a family holiday. We looked at the pictures and were confident it was a nice place not too far from the things we needed. We prefer a little seclusion but still want the choice to go to beaches etc. From the start the agents were brilliant the organisation effective and friendly. We arrived late at night around midnight and our first impression was awe - this is a substantial and imposing Villa. The house was immaculate everywhere and we soon came to realise that this is entirely down to the Cleaning/Admin team Ian and Anne who are on hand to advise and prepare the property for your visit. The furnishings are lavish, the open spaces are large and roomy (way bigger than the pictures suggest). The Pool was clean and a very good size (important to us). Two of the rooms have twin beds and whilst of good size better suited to children and perhaps a two family arrangement than 4 couples. The villa is close to everything, supermarkets within around 3 km's Protarus the same. Ayia Napa about 7km. Very close to Waterworld and Nissi beach (recommended) and of course Fig Tree Bay. If i could find anything at all negative to say it would be the floors are slippery when wet. This is a grand place to say which shows the owner is devoted to and cares about its upkeep. There is a team Paul the pool guy who gave us restaurant tips and the Solar Panel's were checked also while were there. The check out team were kind and accommodating and it all works very well. All in all the location, villa, service surpassed our expectations by some degree and i would urge anybody viewing to strongly consider booking (but not too many because we will likely go back. The owner has several other properties too all seem lavish and having seen this one i would be assured about the others. My advice if your thinking of Cyprus just book this we had a wonderful holiday here.

"What a fabulous place"
What a place. Situated in a quiet place can here the cockrals in the morning, over looking the sea.
This villa: The owner should be proud , its a palace.
It has every amenity going all in good condition.
The meet and greet was spot on, Ann / Ian take care of the villa, what lovely people.
Paul is the maintenance man he cleans the pool regularly whilst on your stay.
All i can say is we will stay here again.
Thank you Darrell ( booking agent) Who sold this villa to us and saw to our every needs.

"Lovely villa in nice part of Protaras"
We have been to Amani Villa on three consecutive years running and we are looking forwards to going back again. The Villa is very , very well appointed and luxurious. The beds are huge and comfortable and the owner has an English lady and husband who look after the Villa very well and our needs. It is spotless and very well equipped. The pool is stunning and it is very private which we like. The kids run around very happily and love the large pool. It has good sea views and is only a short drive to many really nice beaches, such as Pernera, the lovely Protaras beach and Fig tree bay. The large supermarkets such as Carrfour are also only a short drive away. A car is needed but we like it as it is quiet and private yet not far away from everything we need.

"Peace and Quiet in Luxury"
This villa is very luxurious. It is kitted out with every conceivable gadget to make it a home from home and thus an enjoyable holiday - eg flat screen TV's, bluetooth sound system, play station for the kids complete with a good variety of games, etc. The lounge area and patio area around the (quite superb) pool is very spacious and could easily accommodate two families of 4 without feeling in anyway cramped at all. In fact, it will prove to be much bigger than most people's main residences. The standard of finish is superb, particularly the bathrooms and the owner is fastidious in this respect and it shows. The kitchen is very well equipped for family meals and there is a very large dining table in addition to a kitchen bar table with stools (which most visitors will most probably use anyway). The beds are extremely comfortable and there is plenty of storage and wardrobe space for an extended stay if necessary. I particularly liked the slightly remote location as it proved to be very quiet and ideal to get away from the day-to-day noise of modern life. It's very quiet - there is no main road noise and it's not under a flight path; things we often forget to look out for when booking a holiday. There is even central heating fitted if you wanted to go there out of season - something you won't find in many such villas in Cyprus. Overall, an exceptionally clean, well-maintained and equipped, beautifully furnished, outstanding property. Some excellent local restaurants too.
