Although the majority of our superb destinations make the perfect location for your family holiday, writing about all of them would definitely take up most of your day, so here’s our ‘selection of the week’ for our best destinations for family holidays!
If you’re looking for somewhere new to take the family on holiday then why not consider one of the many beautiful resorts that Cyprus has to offer! Although it may take a little longer to get there compared to other great Sunmaster destinations, such as the ever-increasingly popular resorts of Spain, like Costa Brava & Costa Del Sol, Cyprus is definitely worth the extra flight time and is without a doubt one of the sunniest and funnest destinations that Sunmaster has to offer!
Although some of us may only associate Cyprus with clubbing holidays, the same as many of us do with Ibiza, once you have enjoyed a holiday here you will see how varied the resorts are and what a wonderful destination Cyprus makes no matter what kind of holiday you’re after.
One of the best resorts for family orientated holidays has to be the sunny resort of Protaras! Located on the east coast of Cyprus, Protaras is one of the most popular destinations in Cyprus for families and rightly so! Boasting some stunning beaches with beautiful golden sand and amazingly clear, blue waters, Protaras offers you many great opportunities for catching the rays but make sure that you take a hearty supply of that sun lotion, as the sun can be very intense especially if you’re not used to direct sunlight, like most of us here in the UK! If you get a bit toasty, then why not cool off by going for a dip in the beautiful waters! Here you can also enjoy some great water activities such as diving, jet skiing and para-sailing, or if you would like to keep things a little more suited to the kids then why not let them try snorkeling! This is a great way to get them introduced to the water and comfortable with getting their heads wet, they may even see some of the beautiful marine life that lives under the surface! However, if the little monsters are a bit too little for the ocean then don’t worry, you can still let them have fun in the water thanks to the Protaras Water Park! Here you will find some colourful slides for the bigger kids to enjoy and also some calm, shallow swimming pools so you can get the little ones used to water without the depth and unpredictability of the open ocean. If you would prefer to stay completely dry, there is a Go Karting centre close by!
Protaras has a fine selection of great restaurants offering some delicious and varied cuisine. Whether you want a Full-English in the morning and an Italian in the evening, with some authentic Cyprian cuisine in the daytime, the resort offers it all and there’s nothing better than having a amazing range of food at your fingertips! There are also some wonderful cafes and interesting shops to check out on your travels!
