It’s the location that’s got everyone talking at the Pernera Beach. It’s set right in a sandy cove in Pernera, a quiet area skirting the edge of Protaras, with a clutch of bars and restaurants just a few minutes’ walk up the road. At the hotel itself, you’ll find a semi-circular pool right behind the sand, with plenty of loungers and a grassy area to chill out on. There’s a heated pool indoors, as well. On the food front, the buffet restaurant lays on regular Cypriot and Italian themed evenings – or you can book yourself a table at the taverna-style á la carte that sits right on the beach.
