Protaras 100%

Lots of bars on the strip playing music , live shows , karaoke , magic shows , hypnotist , something for every one .

If you fancy the dico/club scene then a bus takes you there from protaras .

I have stayed in both ANapa, and Protaras, and as Gary says,Protaras every time. If you want a bit more nightlife then Ayai napa is easy to get to.

Ayia Napa will be the next place to have a Russian Referendum. Ive noticed the change over the last 5 or 6 years and I wont be going back. Protaras for me.

I'm afraid you'll find the Russians everywhere these days holiday resort wise including Protaras...........read some of the hotel reviews to understand just how many there are in the resort

cuckooWestMids...........not sure you've been to Ayia Napa but that isn't what the resort is about, there's one square and bar street where the clubbers focus on............Ayia Napa is a huge resort, 4 times the size of Protaras so most people don't even find the square

Sorry I was referring to the square, where I visited & had a great time with 8 lads " on the pull" many years ago. Nissi beach is great, so is the waterpark, fair & few restaurants. Still say Protaras 100%, went to Napa last year for 1 night on the bus to take my daughter to the fair, couldn't wait to get back. Just don't seem as safe, relaxed or as up market as Protaras. If I was single & going clubbing then Napa would win, but those days are long gone!😎

Last year we were staying in a villa in Pernera and decided to go to Napa for our lunch and have a look around the resort , it was deserted , there was a handful of people about , must have all been in bed still from all that ballroom dancing last night .

Lol

Having been a Cyprus lover since 1993 and having stopped in Ayia Napa every time except for our last holiday......Protaras 100% it is much cleaner and upmarket than Ayia Napa. Don't get me wrong, I still like Ayia Napa because it does have a lot going for it but it has deteriorated over the last 20 years imho. With it being so close to Protaras you get the best of both worlds. You can jump on the bus or in a taxi and be there in 10 minutes when you do want to go. There's some lovely beaches there also. Ayia napa is a lot bigger than Protaras but it's a lot more spread out too.

They both have good things going for them, the Maina/harbour area is lovely at Napa and there are lots of nice bars/restaurants up and down Nissi avenue and down to the harbour. The Monastery is nice to see but then you're getting very close to the 'square' ! We prefer protaras as it always seems a bit more friendly but we always have a couple of nights out in Napa.
