Cyprus’ Fig Tree Bay has been ranked 3rd among the world’s top 50 beaches


A resort town in Eastern Cyprus, Fig Tree Bay, has been ranked third among the top 50 best beaches in the world for 2019, according to travel website Big 7.

According to the website, “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,” the website continued.

Number 1 on the list was Zlatni rat (Golden Horn Beach) in Brac, Croatia followed by Whitehaven Beach in Australia.

The top spots on this year’s list were chosen from a number of factors including being voted upon by Big 7 readers, scores from previous media results, official Blue Flag locations and contributions from the Big 7 Travel editorial team.
