Fig-tree bay is the most precious gem on Protaras’ coastal tiara. Its crystal clear waters and fine- grained, golden sand have made the beach very popular and it features today on many travel guides among the best beaches in Europe.
It has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag for its outstanding water quality and public facilities and it is a Green Beach under the eco-initiative “Greening Cyprus Beaches”. The bay is named after the solitary fig tree which is planted by the headland of the beach and has patrolled the bay ever since its arrival with eastern invaders in the 17th century.
The islet at its north makes it even more picturesque while assisting to keep the seas calm. At the same time it is easily reachable for exploration by adventurous swimmers. The bay has excellent facilities, with sun beds and parasols available for hire, a wide selection of water sports such as waterskiing and paragliding. It provides disabled access and is serviced by a lifeguard.
