Among Cyprus’ many attractions are its picturesque beaches, which draw crowds year-round, including a significant number of British tourists. One such stunning coastal spot is Fig Tree Bay Beach, named after a majestic fig tree introduced by conquerors in the 17th century. This tree is a testament to Cyprus’ rich history, and the island’s coastline is dotted with similar fig trees, adding to its unique charm.

Fig Tree Bay, located in the city of Famagusta, within the lively coastal resort of Protaras, extends over 500 meters of golden sands bordered by the vibrant blue waters of the Mediterranean. Recognized by Big Travel 7 as the 3rd best beach in the world, it’s not just the beauty that captivates but also its commitment to environmental standards, earning it the ‘Blue Flag’ for exceptional water quality and facilities, as well as the title of ‘Green Beach’.

Apart from its natural allure, Fig Tree Bay Beach is a hub of activity and relaxation. It is divided into two distinct areas: a northern sandy bay, devoid of vegetation, offering a classic beach experience, and a southern rocky bay, presenting a more rugged natural landscape. The beach is perfectly suited for romantic strolls, family outings, or solitary reflections. Adding to its charm is a breathtaking fountain, a centerpiece that complements the scenic beauty.

For those seeking more than just sunbathing and relaxation, Fig Tree Bay doesn’t disappoint. Water sports are a popular draw, with options ranging from jet skiing to parasailing, all overseen by experienced staff ensuring a safe and enjoyable time for visitors of all ages. The pedestrian trail along the beach is a delight for those who prefer a leisurely walk or a jog, with stunning views accompanying every step.

Conveniently, Fig Tree Bay Beach is surrounded by an array of amenities that cater to every need. Just a stone’s throw away are numerous restaurants and coffee shops, offering everything from local Cypriot delicacies to international cuisine. These eateries provide a delightful opportunity to taste the island’s culinary offerings while enjoying views of the Mediterranean. Additionally, supermarkets and other shops are readily accessible, making it easy for visitors to pick up essentials or souvenirs.

Fig Tree Bay’s blend of natural beauty, historical significance, and modern conveniences make it an ideal destination for anyone visiting Cyprus. Whether you’re looking to unwind on the beach, enjoy water sports, or simply soak in the Mediterranean ambiance, Fig Tree Bay offers an experience that is both enriching and unforgettable.
