Faye Mellor Travel Writing Protaras is a captivating resort drenched in sunshine, unspoilt beaches, fishing coves and tiny inlets. This is the place where I was lucky enough to spend two whole weeks during my summer holidays. Protaras is a town on the island of Cyprus; it is located in the white washed town area of Paralimni, which is known to the Cypriots as the 'land of windmills'.
