Ayia Napa – Protaras

Few words about
Ayia Napa – Protaras

Agia Napa is known for its lively nightlife and is a popular tourist destination, as is Protaras in the Paralimni seaside region. Dine at several restaurants and visit the lively nightclubs. Enjoy the white sand beaches and clear waters during the day, as well as the many other activities, including boat rides around the coast. A collection of settlements in the region of Famagusta is known as Kokkinochoria (the “red soil villages”). This is owing to the rich red soil in which potatoes are grown. Cyprus potatoes are well-known and one of the country’s primary exports. Sotira is one of the settlements in this region where mediaeval churches proliferate. In museums of folk art, such as the one in Deryneia, magnificent rural relics are on show. You and your family would do well to visit the Marine Life Museum or the recently constructed Sea Museum, which houses a magnificent reproduction of a 4th-century commerce vessel that sank off the coast of Kyrenia.
