Fig Tree Bay takes its name from an ancient solitary fig tree overlooking a pristine white sand beach that gets very crowded in summer. It is Protaras's main beach and a popular destination for families with children because the shallow sea at the shore provides suitable conditions for the little ones to play safely. Lifeguards on patrol from May until September add a plus of security for swimmers at Fig Tree Bay.
Beachgoers can rent sun loungers and parasols and use facilities like showers, restrooms, and changing areas. Cafes, beach bars, and restaurants offer refreshments, snacks, and traditional or international warm mains to satisfy every palate.
Water sports available at Fig Tree Bay will satisfy the most adventurous visitors with a variety of fun-filled activities, including jet skiing, kayaking, wakeboarding, wakesurfing, parasailing, towable rides, flyfish rides, and Ringo (tubes), among many others. In addition, the water is clear enough to be suitable for snorkelling, especially around the small islet, a short swim from the shore.
Take advantage of the boardwalk and take a stroll along the beach. Look out for the Hellenistic tomb unearthed in 2010 when the local authorities made some structural improvements to the beach. Take pictures with the fig tree or go to the north end of the beach to explore a picturesque rock cove.
