A luxurious design hotel found in the pretty resort of Protaras, Cyprus, the Capo Bay Hotel is a modern accommodation choice that offers everything you could need for a memorable beachside holiday. Just steps away from Fig Tree Bay Beach, which has been awarded Blue Flag status, you can breathe in fresh sea air from all over the hotel. Regularly talked about as one of the best beaches in Europe, the Capo Bay Hotel is the ideal base to make the most of this renowned stretch of sand.
Whether you stay on a full-board of half-board basis, the hotel operates on a dine around concept, meaning you can choose between a host of local restaurants that are participating in the programme – meaning you won’t have to eat at the same restaurants every day. Cuisine offered onsite includes European and Asian fare across six restaurants and bars. The Oneiro Spa Center has a sauna, Jacuzzi, hammam, steam bath, indoor pool, and even a gym. There is also a large outdoor pool.
A more sedate and family-friendly alternative to neighbouring Ayia Napa, Protaras is a great choice for those who enjoy being close to the action, but not quite in it. Known for its luxurious hotels like Capo Bay Hotel, glorious beaches, some of which boast Blue Flag status, it’s perfect for sun seekers. Some of Cyprus’ best beaches can be found on this side of the island, including the famous Fig Tree Bay. Here, you can enjoy water sports, and there’s even a small island close by that you can swim to.
Hiking is a popular activity, and a great way to burn off yesterday’s ice creams before settling down on a sun lounger. There are two main walks; the first departs from the Church of Profitis Elias and takes around three hours to complete, and for something a little less intensive, opt for the 45-minute circular route that begins and ends at the chapel of Agioi Anargyroi. If you’re looking for a day out, visit Cape Greco, a protected nature park that’s great for snorkeling and isn’t far by boat. If the chilled-out atmosphere does have you craving more, Ayia Napa is just a 10-minute taxi ride away.
