Protaras (Greek: Πρωταράς; Turkish: Protaras), is a predominantly tourist resort. It comes under the administrative jurisdiction of Paralimni Municipality.
In ancient times, where Protaras is now located stood the old city-state of Leukolla. The city possessed a small safe harbour where the Athenian Demetrius Poliorketes in the year 306 B.C. sought refuge, lying in wait for Ptolemeos, one of the successors of Alexander the Great. In the ensuing battle Ptolemeos was defeated and fled to Egypt, leaving Cyprus for a while in the hands of Demetrius. Protaras is also referred to as “the land of windmills” maintaining the nostalgic quality of the past.
Protaras has sandy beaches with clear sky-blue waters and the most well known beach in the area is Fig Tree Bay. On the back of the success of Ayia Napa (which is only a few km away), it has expanded into a modern holiday resort of considerable size with tens of high capacity hotels, hotel apartments, villas, restaurants, pubs and associated facilities. Being quieter than Ayia Napa and having less of a club scene, it has a reputation of catering more for family and Cypriot tourism.
