Golden Coast Beach Hotel

Protaras is a top location for a family holiday and a stay at the Golden Coast Beach Hotel puts you right on the edge, so you’re close enough to walk to the main attractions, but not be bothered by the lively bars and clubs. There’s a beach right on the doorstep here and you have good access to the best two beaches in the region. Choose from the private and secluded Sirena Bay or the wet and wild water sports of Fig Tree Bay.

If you want to visit the bars and restaurants in the centre of town, it’s a few minutes’ drive or a half-hour walk. Traditional Cypriot food is plentiful here but you’ll also find steakhouses and English classics. The surroundings in Protaras are truly sumptuous. There’s a new activity on every street corner and stretch of sand, so the whole family will be busy from sunrise until sunset.

Overview of Protaras

Protaras is located right on the southern tip of Cyprus. A long-time favourite with holidaymakers looking for holidays to the Larnaca region of Cyprus, it’s slightly more relaxed here than in nearby Ayia Napa, but there’s still plenty going on.

At heart, it’s a family-friendly resort. Built because of the fantastic beaches in the region, it’s no wonder that hotels like the Golden Coast Beach Hotel pull right up against the sands. The seas are clear, calm and packed with water sports. In the town, you’ll find lots of character and charm. It’s built on the site of an ancient battle with a descendent of Alexander the Great, so it’s certainly got a story to tell.
