Paralimni is the nearest & largest town to Kapparis with many shops, supermarkets and facilities/amenities - including a football ground!
In recent years due to its rapid development, the whole tourist area of Paralimni Municipality has been called Protaras. This extends for approximately 10 kilometres beginning in the north in the Kapparis locality and ending in the south in the Konnos area. Other areas along this coast are the Ayia Triada bay, Vrysoythkia bay, Pernera bay, boasting some of the best beaches on the island.
Paralimni is a very Cypriot town blending its Venetian architecture with modern day shops, houses and commercial centres attracting visitors to its narrow walkways or shopping malls.
Being Slightly more inland, Paralimni is an escape/alternative from the tourist attractions of the other two main towns Ayia Napa and Protaras especially during the nighttime.
The municipality holds weekly plays, dance and music shows in its outdoor theatre which are very popular. There is a large shopping center in Paralimni used by the surrounding villages, and a cinema complex showing the latest movies.
