Additional Location Information
Unlike Pernera and Protaras which are very quiet and closed during the off peak seasons, Kapparis is open all year. Restaurants offer local and international cuisine. You can sample Italian, Chinese, French and Mexican food and there is even a pub. Try the kleftiko and meze at Faliros and Karas which serve amazing local cuisine in ethnically decorated interiors. Karas even has a pool to enjoy your meal around. The supermarket, fruit shop, bakery and other shops are a mere 100m from the flat. Relax at nearby Fireman's beach and catch a glimpse of Varosha, the 'ghost town' abandoned and uninhabited since the 1974 Turkish military invasion. You can enjoy many watersports at unspoilt Kapparis bay including parasailing, jet skiing, water skiing and wakeboarding, and hire a speed boat/kayak/pedalo or even charter your own luxury yatch! A small local zoo and viewpoint are worth visiting.
Paralimni, the largest town in the area and only a 5 min drive away, is pleasant with a wide assortment of shops (shopper's paradise - I bought some fanastic handbags and shoes for a bargain), restaurants, bars and cafes. Three churches dominate the centre of the town and Panayia church houses an interesting ecclesiastical museum. Dine at one of the cafes around the town square which has an open air theatre, attractive gardens, a playground and fountains. Our son threw and painted his own pot at the local pottery.
On the northern outskirts of Protaras, Pernera is a small coastal resort popular with couples and families seeking a holiday destination away from the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist resorts. It has a small but active harbour from where boat trips can be taken.
10 min to the south is Protaras, boasting a fabulous selection of blue flag beaches including Fig Tree Bay. It is family orientated but also suited to couples and there are a huge number of leisure activities including snorkelling, paragliding, and scuba diving to please all holiday makers. Children will love the "Yellow Submarine" and the "Glass Bottomed Boat" and the "Amazing Magic Dancing Waters" - a fantastic spectacle of fountain power, sound and light with its own erupting volcano. Dining out is a fabulous experience with all kinds of local and international cuisine. The quaint domed church of Profitis Elias, floodlit at night, is perched precariously on the top of a hill overlooking the town.
The rocky coast of Cape Greko further down has a number of walking trails and its idyllic clear waters are a perfect retreat for snorkelers or swimmers who want to avoid the busy beaches. Known for it's exciting opportunities for water sports, cliff diving and historic lighthouse, a trip to this pristine location is a must.
Other than its white sandy beaches with turquoise waters and beach events, Ayia Napa is also very popular for its amazing night life with plenty of night clubs and bars to choose from. Here also is Water World, the biggest water theme park in Europe. There are day cruises and boat tours you and your family can embark on and a visit to the stunning sea caves is always a treat. An international golf course is being constructed in Agia Napa but in the meantime enjoy a round at the golf course in Larnaca.
