Situated in the Famagusta district, the modern purpose-built resort of Protaras lies within an hour's drive of Larnaca International Airport via the A3 and is one of the island's premier holiday resorts.
Cyprus benefits from an average of 340 days of sunshine a year, and has long been a favourite destination for house buyers looking for a retirement home. For holidaymakers, however, Protaras offers a perfect blend of outstanding Blue Flag beaches, good shopping and dining and vibrant nightlife.
Families often find that renting an apartment in Protaras is more economical than renting a villa or staying in a hotel room, where they also have less space and privacy. This makes investing in holiday apartments in the Greater Protaras area a potentially lucrative opportunity.
Protaras Beach, a long white sandy strip of land with great amenities and facilities, is ideal for young children thanks to its shallow waters. The land on which the resort is build is flat, so hiring a bike for a day and pedalling to the nearby resort of Paralimni is not too strenuous for older children either. Hire a boat and explore the stunning beaches that line the coast.
Second-hand apartments in the Famagusta district start at around 60,000 euros, while four-bedroom detached villas with a swimming pool cost around 450,000 euros.
