Pernera is quieter than Protaras with many charming tavernas, bars, restaurants and shops. There is certainly enough for the family, friends and couples to do if you want to combine the beach and pool with a reasonably quiet and relaxing holiday. Pernera has some fantastic restaurants - lots to choose from and many bars.
Pernera beach has been awarded with the Blue Flag for its clean and safe waters. You will find all kinds of watersport facilities such as wind-surfing, water skiing, para sailing, canoe & paddle boats as well as speed boat rentals. The sandy coves around Pernera are perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving and really safe for children due to the shallow and clear waters.
If you’re looking for something a little livelier than Pernera; then Protaras, with its vibrant nightlife and famous Fig Tree Bay, is 3km away. A thriving coastline resort with all manner of restaurants, bars, cafés, tourist shops, watersports, excursions and entertainment to keep you busy.

Ski: Cyprus is a wonderful island of contrasts. Where else could you ski in the morning and then be sunning yourself by the pool in the afternoon?
Skiing in Cyprus in the Troodos Mountians is usually available in the winter months from the beginning of January to the end of March. There are 5 slopes and 4 lifts (Hera, Aphrodite, Hermes and Zeus) and runs vary in ability for beginners through to advanced and they even offer routes for cross country skiers.
You can hire equipment at the Cyprus Ski Club “ski shop”. Get there early though, as, on a busy weekend, the best equipment goes very fast!
