A new extension to the beach promenade in Protaras has been scheduled for November. According to the budget that was just announced to the press, this new significant project will cost around 4.5 million Euros.
The promenade itself was recently constructed, breathing new life to the famous summer resort, allowing visitors, both during the summer months and the rest of the year, to enjoy strolling or running across the beachfront, by the beautiful waters of Protaras.
According to the mayor of Paralimni, Mr Theodoros Pyrillis, several works have been scheduled for the autumn of 2019 pertaining to the extension of the Protaras promenade, aiming at unifying the whole beachfront and making the most of it for the citizens of Protaras and tourists alike.
Tenders have been issued for the extension of the promenade, which will greatly improve the offered amenities and services of the ever-growing number of visitors. The issuance expires on September 17th, and work is scheduled to begin in the first week of November and be concluded within five weeks.
The promenade will be extended to both sides; namely, from the famous Fig Tree Bay to Chatzixeni Vali in one side, and from the Pernera beach to St. Nikolaos chapel in the other. The promenade will be extended on both sides by 3.5 km.
The full unification of the beachfront will create new recreation facilities while securing the uniformity of all separate projects, and the aesthetic upgrading of the whole area. Through the promenade, visitors will have access to an array of amenities, such as restaurants, recreation boats, playgrounds, squares with kiosks and shaded spaces, and, of course, the various beaches of the area.
Needless to say, several cultural and social events will take place in various points along the promenade, transforming the area into a focal point and a unique contact point for cultural interaction between locals and visitors.
What’s most important though is that visitors will now be able to safely enjoy the sea while participating in several other activities, despite the crowds that swarm in Protaras every summer.
