Capo Bay Hotel

The Capo Bay Hotel overlooks Fig Tree Bay, so marvellous views are everywhere you look. Outside, two lagoon-like pools are the focal point, but inside the spotlight falls on a chic lounge and vodka bar.

One of the outdoor pools is surrounded by palms and tropical flowers. Teak loungers line the water’s edge and there’s a bar at one end. In the summer, it’s reserved for adults. There’s also an adults-only pool in the spa that has a whirlpool bath.

In the evening, the poolside venue transforms into a taverna that specialises in Greek classics. Elsewhere, the Koi restaurant serves fusion food.

Overview of Protaras

From the secretive Serena Bay to the water sports and good times of Fig Tree Bay, rumour has it that the gorgeous coastline was the reason why Protaras was built in the first place.

Protaras is a great base for any holiday to the Larnaca region of Cyprus. It’s a tourist town, so as well as great hotels like the Capo Bay Hotel, it provides guests with plenty of restaurants and ancient attractions. Plus, the party-hard nightlife in Ayia Napa is nearby. During a stay in Protaras, families and couples alike are never short of something to do.

Things to do in Protaras

The Capo Bay Hotel comes with an A* postcode. The Blue Flag-winning Fig Tree Bay is just to one side, while Protaras’ centre is on the other.

On the front, secluded coves meet long and sandy beaches. There are spots designed for relaxing, but if you want to get the blood pumping, then you’ll only be a short walk away from a water sports station.

As night falls, traditional Cypriot food is always on the menu. But, world cuisine is available almost everywhere, so it’s impossible to spend any time with an empty stomach.

Spend days basking in the bay and nights relaxing over drinks. Protaras will keep you entertained from sunrise until sunset.

Resort Summary

Nostalgia and history are deeply woven into the fabric of Protaras, the Cypriot town said to be built on the site of an ancient battle with a descendant of Alexander the Great. Nowadays, it’s a sunny town of fun and relaxation, although close enough to areas like Larnaca and Ayia Napa that you’ll never be at a loss for something to do during your Cyprus holidays. The beaches are golden and the town is full of character.
