Fig Tree Bay

Top choice in Cyprus

The most popular, and best, of Protaras' sandy strips, Fig Tree Bay lies at the southern end of the Protaras seaside promenade. It has a small sand island just off the coast, which is great for snorkelling, with lots of fish to be seen, and the promenade behind it is shoulder-to-shoulder bars, cafes and restaurants.
