A small and popular with the Cypriots, the beach has 100 length narrow sand strip and some shade under the trees. Not much suitable for non-swimmers or children, as the sand decreases quite steeply. The parking facilities are good, and there is a large hotel and restaurants for holiday makers who choose to base here.

This Cyprus beach is the most popular within Protaras Beach . The British christened it "Fig Tree Bay" and the name was given after the single fig tree that stands guard back from the beach and is claimed to have been brought from the east in the 17 th century. The beach has fine-grained sand, the sea is clear and it is supplied with recreational facilities like water-skiing, paragliding and more.
