If you enjoy walking, then Cape Greco is easily accessible along the main road. From sea cliffs with their sparking waters to the beautiful indigenous fauna, this wildly beautiful area is great for some 'me' time.

Also, along the Protaras road you can walk up to Elias Hills and view Protaras from a higher point - breathtaking.

If walking does not appeal you can still view the church from Protaras, which is all lit up at night.
