YOUR HOLIDAY

Cyprus Rocks is held in the first week of October each year, featuring some of the finest tributes to the biggest names in Classic Rock from the UK and Europe. Held in Protaras, on the south east coast of the island - the surroundings for the event is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world. With fantastic weather all year round, even in October the average temperature is a pleasant 22°C, with an average high of around 27°C. Sitting on the gorgeous Famagusta Coastline, Protaras is a beautiful sandy beach resort which oozes Mediterranean charm. It’s the perfect holiday destination for families and couples looking for a relaxing break, away from the hustle and bustle of the big towns with clear blue seas and plenty of sunshine.  A popular attraction is the ghost town of Varosha, abandoned in 1974 when the Turkish army invaded. The town is still eerily furnished and equipped, as if frozen in time.

Cyprus Rocks is situated in Pernera on the outskirts of Protaras, well known for its sandy bays and picturesque harbour, offering daily boat tours that will take you up and down the impressive coastline.  This pretty little town has plenty of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes, and a regular bus service that operates island wide.  There are some fantastic places to eat in Pernera. Blue Spice Restaurant is not only a hot spot for its eclectic menu, but also for its stunning outdoor pool and sun lounging facilities.  If you are looking for traditional English food, Mojito Bar and Grill comes highly recommended.  For outstanding seafood dishes and local cuisine, in a location that will blow you away, there is no better place to eat and relax than Aeyialos.

Pernera really comes to life at night, with a hub of quirky bars including the popular Knights Pub, The Lounge and Koursaros Rock Bar to name but a few.

LOCAL CUISINE

During your holiday you will definitely want to venture out to sample the local cuisine so we have featured but a few eateries to really whet your appetite, all of which are situated in a convenient location to many of our recommended hotels, apartments and villas within the Pernera resort district.
