From sunrise to sunset


A home at Sunrise Developments offers you the privilege of having all the fun of Agia Napa and Protaras on one side, and the natural wonders of Cape Greco on the other side.

During your first visit to Protaras, you might be tempted to spend as much time as possible on the beach, enjoying the clear cool water, the sugary sands and the exciting water sports available across the coast.

But if you’re considering making Cyprus your second home, make sure to explore the immediate surroundings of Protaras, as well as the other towns on the island and the Troodos Mountains – the ‘green heart’ of Cyprus.

Our island is small, and you can actually cross it from one end to the other in just over two hours. Take advantage of the opportunity to get to know Cyprus, coast to coast.

Although your first stop might be the island’s major towns, both the seaside resorts and the inland capital, Nicosia, it will always be rewarding to be a bit more adventurous. Explore hidden villages, serene churches and monasteries and the island’s historical treasures; you will never be disappointed.

Here’s what you’ll find in the vicinity of Sunrise Residences:

Paralimni, for your daily needs

Paralimni, the closest village to Sunrise Residents, is where you’ll find all your day-to-day needs: supermarkets, local taverns, chemists, post office, churches and medical care. Unlike some of the tourist centres, Paralimni is a fully-fledged village, full of life and offering everyday services all year round. This is where you can get to know local residents and are likely to make your first Cypriot friends.

Agia Napa & Protaras, for fun in the sun

Agia Napa and Protaras are two popular summer resorts that are usually mentioned in the same breath, as they are only minutes apart. This is where visitors from around the world, especially the young and young at heart, enjoy the fun and excitement associated with carefree summers in the sun. Apart from the sandy beaches, the shopping and entertainment centres, numerous restaurants and hotels, Agia Napa’s popular farmers market and the landmark monastery in the centre of the town should be among the first places you visit.

Cape Greco, unspoiled and inspiring

Cape Greco is a location that is bound to touch your heart. Even from a distance, its cliffs will catch your eye, inviting you to come closer and explore the details. And once you’re actually there and start walking along the gentle trail the leads to the top of the cliff, you’ll be hooked. After all, Cape Greco did not earn its place in the Natura 2000 project for nothing. This European Union initiative recognized it as a valuable natural habitat that deserves to be protected. The wealth of flora and fauna varies with the seasons, making every visit a new experience.

A choice of Blue Flag beaches

The southeastern coast of Cyprus – around Protaras, Agia Napa and Cape Greco – is dotted with little coves and bays that are always well worth exploring. Among the more well-known beaches you’ll find many that are marked as ‘Blue Flag’ beaches, a European Union assurance of a high level of cleanliness and organised facilities such as water sports, restaurants or snack bars and cafés. The most popular ones in this area are Agia Thekla, Makronissos beach, Landa beach, Nissi beach, Pernera beach, and Konnos.
