FIG TREE BAY
Fig Tree Bay is the most popular beach in Protaras. Its name is derived from a fig tree that stands alone close to the beach. Golden sands and a buzzing day life and an even more frantic night life is the name of the game due to the many restaurants, bars, discos and cafes close by. The bay is named after the solitary fig tree which stands at the headland of the beach and has overlooked the bay ever since its arrival with eastern invaders in the 17th century. Fig-tree bay is Protaras’ coastal jewel in the crown. Its crystal clear waters and fine-grained, golden sand has made the beach very popular and is why it features today on Trip Advisor as 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 “Green Cyprus Beaches”.
Found close to the main avenue in Protaras and the Pernara resort, Louma beach is a real pleasure to be on due to its soft fine sand and the surrounding constructed bay.
