Fig Tree Bay in Protaras has been listed third in a list of the top 50 beaches in the world for 2019 by the Big 7 Travel website, behind Croatia’s Zlatni Rat and Australia’s Whitehaven Beach.
Making up the top five are Grace Bay in Turks and Caicos and Secret Lagoon in the Philippines.
On Fig Tree Bay, the site says: “Fig Tree Bay is a scenic sandy beach in the resort of Protaras, Cyprus, with an uninhabited islet that you can swim to from the shore.
The beach has golden sand, lively beach bars and plenty of umbrellas to shelter from the sun. It’s popular, so don’t expect an empty beach, but it’s so pretty you won’t mind sharing.”
