When the mood takes you, Mediterranean resorts offer a variety of fun activities to enjoy. So get out there and keep active, rather than spending your whole holiday sat on the sun lounger!
Protaras has a host of vibrant bars and restaurants, many of which stay open into the small hours. This is one of the reasons many Mediterranean holidaymakers are in the area. Take a taxi to the nearby resort of Ayia Napa for some serious clubbing though, with a wide selection of clubs and bars where 24-hour party people congregate to dance the night away. It may not be clean living but dancing is certainly fantastic exercise.
The glittering Aegean playground of Kusadasi is an obvious choice for sun-worshippers, but there are numerous sights to explore while you stretch your legs and work up an appetite for the next meal. The most famous, of course, is the historic city of Ephesus, one of the most beautiful and best preserves sites of the ancient world. Dating back to 3000 BC, the Romans, Greeks, Lydians and even the legendary Amazons have left traces of their civilization and mythology here.
You can treat your body as a temple by booking a traditional Turkish bath, or hamam, if exploring ancient monuments sounds a bit too much like hard work. The time-honoured rituals will leave you looking as glowing as you feel with hot and cold pools, massage, treatments for face and body all being available.
Mykonos is one of the best resorts in the Mediterranean for scuba diving, and if you’ve never tried it before, there are plenty of introductory courses available. These will allow you to explore beneath those sapphire waters safely during the course of your holiday, whilst experienced divers can get to grips with underwater photography, night diving, deep diving and other advanced skills. If you want to get to know the world beneath the surface of the sea (without going to deep), snorkelling is also available.
