•Visit Fig Tree Bay- the beach is fabulous and the sea is crystal clear and shallow, ideal for small children. Sunbed (x2) and umbrella cost £3.75 Cypriot pounds per day.We also visited Waterworld in Ayia Napa about a 20 min drive from Protaras. We had an excellent day out and it wasn't too crowded. The park was extremely clean and tidy and had plenty of sunbeds and umbrella's available. The rides were good and catered for all ages, which was really good considering we had a 3yr old and a 10yr old to entertain." - "Bedrock - go there with children is fab, great food, good prices and entertainment all eve for the kids... great fun " - "The Magic Dancing Water show in Protaras is a must see for everyone.
