The resort town of Protaras on the island of Cyprus was purpose-built to cater for British families on holiday, and boasting the best Blue Flag beach on the island, Fig Tree Bay, it has succeeded admirably. It is hard not to have a great holiday in Protaras, its jolly hotels and apartment blocks offering entertainmentmore

Protaras Holiday- Brilliant
I went to Protaras with my family for week and the mix of activities to do was fantastic. We went on boat trips, lazed by the pool, took the kids to the aqua park. But the highlight of my holiday was diving with scuba-tech divers. We did an introduction dive in Green Bay and the colours and number of fish was incredible. We even got to take a dvd home of the dive with pictures. The centre was very professional and made you feel like you were the most important people in the world and it was great fun. A brilliant family activity. Scubatech divers made our holiday!

Protaras / Pernera - Louisa. Date of travel: Sep 2007
We stayed in Kouzalis Hotel in Protaras which was a bit out the way but there was a bus route outside to go places and taxi was not too expensive. We mainly went in to Pernera where there was more bars and restuarants to visit, there was Protaras about a 20 minute walk from Protaras but we only really got so far as Pernera, We visited the Barley Mow pub almost every night where Steve would entertain us with his selection of music from the 50s onwards to the present day, Will and Cheryl was behind the bar and Alex and Marina was the waitresses in there everyone had such a smily face and we felt at home in there, we never made it on the karaoke with our singing as we would probably have cleared the place but we did join in on the quizzes on Monday and Thursday nights which were a lot of fun. Through Will behind the bar we booked up a trip to go snorkelling. The kids absolutely loved it as much as us. We left at 10am got back about 3.30pm, had luch too which was included in the price which was very reasonable for the amount of fun we had with Will and his father. The company was called Flippers and if you ever go to the Barley mow (which you should) be sure to ask Will about the Flippers Trip. It made our holiday. I think if we had booked it at the beginning of the holiday the kids would have wanted to go every day! We also went into Protaras, a lot of the bars were louder and not really for kids, a couple of clubs we noticed for the younger teenagers. We did also have a trip to the water park in Protaras but it was not very big and the kids got bored, taxi was about 5 pound everywhere and a bus was 80cent each, Paralimini is a nice place to visit for shopping... Just a warning Taxi drivers drive a bit fast so be prepared for an alton towers ride... ha!
