Overview

What better way to watch the sun settle into the sea than on a boat!
Join us on a three-hour sunset cruise and experience the picturesque colors of the sky. As we depart from the center of Protaras we cruise along some of the most popular sites of the area such as Fig tree bay, the cliffs, and caves of Cape Greko, the Lovers’ bridge, and of course Blue Lagoon for our main swimming stop. During our main stop, you will have plenty of time to jump in the water, swim, and snorkel around the area, or just simply relax onboard. Once the sun begins to set, we will slowly make our way around the Lighthouse of Cape Greko to get a full view of the sun and watch as it glistens and settles gently into the water, creating beautiful opportunities for photos.

Onboard you will find a finger buffet with a selection of cold cuts and a variety of drinks from our well-stocked bar. Our experienced crew will be there to guide and assist you throughout the cruise and make sure you create unforgettable memories.

Itinerary

Protaras Coastline
Protaras Coastline

Protaras is situated on the south-eastern fringe of Cyprus and has the blessing of the first sunrise in Europe. Protaras extends along the eastern coast and stretches for 10km from the district of ‘Kapparis’ to the location of ‘Konnos’. Hundreds of windmills grant its landscape a quaint, tranquil beauty. Fantastic beaches with crystal clear waters are found along this coast, most of them accredited with the prestigious Blue Flag status.

Fig Tree Bay
Fig Tree Bay

Fig Tree Bay, located in the popular Protaras resort boasts beautiful and fine sand with crystal clear waters. It takes its name from the fig trees found there since the 17th century. There is an uninhabited islet easily reached by swimming through the shallow waters, the location of which provides a good shelter for the rest of the beach. In 2022 it has been rewarded as one of the top 25 beaches in the world.

Green Bay
Green Bay

Green Bay is situated between the center of Protaras and the area of Cape Greko. It is particularly popular for its underwater sculpture park, attracting snorkelers and divers from around the area.

Konnos Bay
Konnos Bay

The 200-meter-long beach of Konnos, located 4 km east of the center of the popular resort of Ayia Napa, on the road between Akrotiri Greko and Protaras, is one of the most picturesque beaches on the island. The last beach that defines the border between Ayia Napa and Paralimni, Konnos is small and idyllic, covered with fine golden sand. It's calm and crystal-clear waters are protected from strong winds.

Cape Greko
Cape Greko

Cape Greco was designated as a National Forest Park in 1993. It is a relatively unspoiled area with great natural beauty both on land and on water. It is an oasis of tranquillity nestled midway between the resorts of Ayia Napa and Protaras.

Covering an area of 385 hectares, Cape Greco is covered by a dense juniper forest. The Grecian Park hotel, the small chapel of Agioi Anargyroi, are some of the few buildings in the area. With natural rocky formations, several caves can be found with the Cyclops being one of the most popular. There are several hiking trails, bicycle tracks, and a designated picnic area. The rocky seabed and underwater caves encourage a wealth of sea life making this area a hot spot for both snorkeling and scuba diving.

Ayioi Anargiroi
Ayioi Anargiroi

The chapel is found on the Eastern side of Cape Greko and is devoted to Ayios Kosmas and Ayios Damianos, both doctors who treated and cured patients without receiving any payment. According to tradition, during one of their journeys in the area, they faced rough seas and their boat was carried away into a cave and was since turned into a chapel. Later on, a new chapel was built just above the cave and it is still used to this date for weddings and christenings.

Lovers Bridge
Lovers Bridge

One of the most amazing natural bridges in Cyprus. It is a masterpiece of nature.
It is located on the road to the chapel of Agioi Anargyroi and is part of the nature path "sea caves".

Private's Cave & Virgin Mary Cave
Private's Cave & Virgin Mary Cave

The Pirate’s Cave is located right next to the Lovers Bridge. It is a natural cave that was once believed to had hidden treasures from the pirates.

The Virgin Mary Cave is located right next to the pirate’s cave. It is named after the carved colonization of the Virgin Mary which can be found inside the cave.

Blue Lagoon
Blue Lagoon

Blue Lagoon is the most popular swimming stop for both private and passenger vessels that visit the area from all around the island. It is popular for its crystal-clear turquoise waters and white sandy bottom. The area is sheltered from strong winds, making it nice and calm.

Light House
Light House

At the crossroads of three continents, Cyprus has always been a pivotal point of reference for seafarers since ancient times. The lighthouses on the island today date back to the last quarter of the 19th century, built during the British rule of the island, with the Cape Greco lighthouse being the second to be built on the island (following the one built in 1888 near Paphos port and castle).

Wir haben sowohl die Sunset-Tour als auch den Family-Boat-Trip gemacht und haben beide vom ersten bis zum letzten Moment genossen Das Boot wird nicht vollgeladen wie andere Ausflugsboote z.T. und so ist die Gruppengröße von ca. 27 Personen wirklich angenehm. Bei jedem Badestopp hatten wir mindestens 30 Minuten Zeit zum Schwimmen, Schnorcheln oder von der Sprungplattform des Bootes ins glasklare Wasser springen. Das Tauchen mit den Schildkröten und das Eintauchen in die Blue Lagoon bei Dunkelheit haben uns besonders beeindruckt. Rundum ein absolut zu empfehlendes Urlaubshighlight zu fairen Preisen!
