The fabulous beach at Konnos Bay also has excellent facilities too including self drive power boat hire that you can pay for by the hour or even the whole day. This is a great idea for groups or families looking for a few hours out on the open sea. You could anchor up in the bay for a spot of swimming or snorkeling in the beautiful warm and crystal clear waters that the bay is so famous for. Further along the coast at Cape Greko or Kavo Greko as the area is also known are many small bays that are only accessible from the sea so you could take a cool box and have a picnic lunch as well.

Water sports in Protaras Cyprus are amongst some of the best along the East coast with all the usual activities you would expect from a major holiday resort. You could try your hand at some water skiing behind a power boat or you and your partner could soar into the clear blue summer skies on a parachute for a birds eye view of this beautiful resort. For the more energetic there are several “banana boat” type rides where you are towed at high speed on a large inflatable log whilst the driver of the boat does his best to bounce the passengers off into the sea.

There is of course a whole lot more to water sports in Protaras Cyprus including the amazing experience of scuba diving. There are several dive centres on and around the resort that offer all kinds of dives from total beginners to ship wreck exploration dives on some famous Cyprus wrecks including the Zenobia.

Many of the diving schools are invited into the hotel complexes to give visitors a chance to try before they buy in the hotels pools.

There you go then, you have no excuse to ever complain that you are bored with sun bathing and that there is nothing else for you to do.
