Papantonia Hotel

Just a few steps away from Marlita Bay and a pebble skim from the bustling region of Pernera, Papantonia Hotel is the perfect place to stay if you’re seeking a laid-back holiday within easy reach of the beach and resort centre. There’s a water park just a couple of steps away from the hotel, and when you’re done there, Marlita Beach is a mere 10-minute walk away. The shops, bars and eateries are about the same distance away again. The Hotel Papantonia offers plenty of entertainment to keep you busy. Cool off in the pool and get stuck into the competitive games, or simply relax and listen to the live music in the evening.

Overview of Protaras

Protaras is a scenic town that overlooks the cobalt Mediterranean Sea. Boasting warm sunshine all year round, it’s easy to see why so many holidaymakers book holidays to Cyprus year after year. Protaras sits in the Larnaca region, with Larnaca just one hour away by car. Its landscape is made up of secluded coves, azure waters and sun-drenched stretches of sand. Also known as the ‘land of the windmills’, this custom-made resort provides a whole host of quaint churches, exciting live shows and fascinating nature trails to discover.

Things to Do in Protaras

Your holiday wouldn’t be complete without visiting one of the most popular beaches in Cyprus: Fig Tree Bay. With crystal clear, shallow waters stretching for miles and miles, not to mention a Blue Flag award for cleanliness, this beach is a huge hit with families. If you’re a nature enthusiast, you’ll be in paradise, as the south-east tip of Cyprus is a natural park. Cape Greco is Cyprus’s own version of Land’s End, boasting incredible panoramas at the peak of the gigantic rock. Or if you fancy some sea and snorkelling, take a dip in the serene coves and clear waters. Protaras is packed with things to see and explore, and the Papantonia Hotel provides the perfect base from which you can sight-see, discover the area and immerse yourself in the local culture. Kick back and relax on the beaches and paddle in the shallow waters of Fig Tree Bay, and you’ll soon feel rejuvenated and refreshed.

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.
