There are a lot of interesting things to do in Protaras except sunbathing and swimming. I will tell you about some of them a little bit.

Horse-riding in Protaras.

It is great possibility to try horse-riding across country on the outskirts of Protaras with views on Cape Greco. Moonshine ranch can offer you such service for 40 euros per hour (the price was in November 2015). It is situated not far from the Grecian Park Hotel (one of 5 star hotels in Cyprus). Moonshine ranch location map. The ride takes an hour. It is not a problem if you've never riden a horse before. The instructor will tell you what to do and will keep an eye on you all the time. You will also have to wear a helmet.

During the ride you will see typical Cyprus landscapes: local gardens and graving vegetables, trees and bushes, the sea in the distance. You see everything differently from the back of the horse, it makes it an interesting experience.

It is a good idea to book a ride in advance in case somebody wants to come at the same time as you. The Moonshine Ranch doesn't have a website, but you can find them on Facebook.

Working hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. everyday

Protaras Ocean Aquarium.

This is not only an aquarium but this is a family leisure park which includes Aquarium, Tropical gardens and Open Air Kiosk with a snack, an ice cream or a cool refreshing drink.

Ayia Napa water park.

It is the place where I unfortunately haven't been myself because it is open from April to October, but it should not be left unmentioned. I think this is a great place for those who likes water rides.

The park is accessible from anywhere in Ayia Napa and Protaras via bus No 102 and it is available from Larnaca via bus No 711.

Troodos travel.

Waterfall in the mountains

The tourist agencies in Cyprus offer a lot of excursions. One of them is travel to Kykkos Monastery by bus.

The Monastery is situated in the Troodos mountains and on the way to it you will see a lot of great mountain views. But you should know that Troodos weather is colder than the weather below, that's why it would be advisable to take warm clothes.
