protaras-beaches-green-bayGreen Bay Beach in Protaras is a lovely little secluded beach ideal for diving, snorkeling and lazy day sun lounging. Just nearby is the Greenbay Watersports and Wakeboarding Club which is one of the very few places in Protaras where you can try your hand at Wakeboarding.
If you are more into Scuba diving you can visit the Aquanaut Scuba Diving School which is run by the same Family and in the same Area.

protaras-beaches-konnos-bay-beachKonnos Bay Beach technically is in the Ayia Napa Municipal Area but very near to Protaras, therefor it is often referred to as a Protaras Beach.
A picturesque Blue Flag beach, a mile east of Ayia Napa on the Protaras road, close to the dramatic, rugged coastline of Cavo Greco, a national forest park with excellent nature trails. Konnos is sheltered from the prevailing winds, despite its wide sweep. Admire the sunsets, and look out for the starfish in the amazingly clear water. From Protaras you might need a Car or Bicycle to get there. It is about 2 or 3 km from the Centre in the direction of Ayia Napa (take the OLD Road to Ayia Napa past the Paramount and Grecian Park Hotel)

Dog Friendly Beach-Kapparis

Dog Friendly Beach KapparisLast-but not least- the only Dog Friendly Beach in this Area, located in Kapparis.
This Beach is the last beach before the occupied areas in Kapparis. If you follow the usual route to Protaras through highway (not through Ayia Napa – Protaras seaside road), you will see big colorful signs directing you to Dog Beach starting from the traffic lights to Protaras. If you miss it – head straight on the road from Protaras towards Kapparis, pass Zorbas on your right, pass Amore Hotel on your left and head straight until next bigger crossroad. Head straight and in few meters you should see a sign on the street light on your right directing you to turn towards the sea (street in between residential house and yellow apartment building). Follow the road until it becomes off-road. Continue straight until you reach the sea. Now with the new dirt road connecting all the beaches built in 2018, you can reach dog beach from MADD beach or Scouts beach – just continue straight to the left until you reach it.
