About Fig Tree Bay

One more shade of blue

Turquoise, blue, a brighter blue - this beach is one of the top beaches in the world. Swim out to the rocky island ahead to swim amidst curious colorful fishes, parasail or bob on a banana boat. 500 meters of golden sand await you. So does a nearby islet accesible by swimming across shallow waters. An ancient tomb has also been unearthed here. A fig tree was planted here in the 17th century; hence the name. This beach is considered to be the third best beach in Europe. Peter Frampton has named one of his songs after it. The pedestrian promenade leads along the coast full of varied entertainment options. A day out will leave you exhausted yet content before you call it a day. And if you are feeling blue, you know where to find that variant shade of blue.
