Beyond Cape Greko, and facing east, PROTARAS is a family-friendly version of its big brother, Agia Napa, along the coast. A long, linear strip from Agia Trias in the north to Fig Tree Bay in the south, Protaras largely fills in the space between the E306 Paralimni to Agia Napa road and the sea. In particular, it spreads along a one-way main street that loops down then rejoins the E306, with spurs heading east to the beaches. Its attractions are particularly human in scale and child-orientated – the Ocean Aquarium, the Magical Dancing Waters, the small Water Park, the mini-golf courses and amusement arcades. Like Agia Napa, Protaras also has its share of intimate Blue Flag beaches.
