Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The water was gorgeous and pretty clean. There couldn't have been more than 20ish umbrellas with 2 sun lounge chairs each so I would go early if I was visiting on a weekend. During the week we arrived around 10-11AM and had no problems choosing from a few spots left. The cost is €2.50 per item so €7.50 total for two chairs and an umbrella rental for as long as we stayed. The attendant seems to come by every so often to collect payment.
This is an intimate little beach with soft sand and crystal turquoise waters. We snorkeled around the rocks and saw a handful of different kinds of fish. We didn't see any sea turtles here but we also didn't plan for ideal timing to see them or anything like that. There are a handful of cute rocky coves you could take your own beach blanket or chair to and enjoy the sun (or shade from the rocks) and the sea. There's a dive school in this little bay and they have some boats which I thought were interesting if not especially natural. Two easily reachable cafe types nearby. The one at the top of the driveway (emergency vehicle access only) had fried food, ice cream, and drinks as well as a nice patio to sit at. I had a margarita that seemed to be an ice blended lemonade with tequila. Zero complaints as it was fantastic and a frozen tequila lemonade is delightful and pretty close to a margarita considering it's not even a Cypriot drink!
The other cafe type is a food van with drinks, juices, cold sandwiches, and also a lovely lounging patio.
My wife and I spent a day and a half at this beach and really enjoyed it. Parking is plentiful and a short distance from the water.
This is also the only beach I saw in my short time in Cyprus with a FREE shower to rinse off at. A great bonus as I didn't have coins most of the time for the showers at the other beaches.

Small quaint beach. No turtles to see in November. Walked along coast and thought we'd sit for a few minutes prior to walking back but we're charged to sit bone an unmatted bed. Fine during summer but in winter?

Beautiful little beach. We saw turtles twice during the few trips we took to Green Bay. Lots of sunbeds available. There’s a little cafe at the top of the beach which sells coffee, food, water etc which is convenient.

Lovely quiet little bay, clean sands and clear water much nicer than fig tree beach! Sunbeds are still hard to get and need to get there early, easy to get to by public bus or even 30 min walk from protaras. Unfortunately didn't see any turtles but did see the underwater statues/city around otherside of green bay. Make sure you take water as no markets very close

We drove to the bay rather than the beach and went in by the rocks. We went once at sunrise - stunning! Quiet and serene and then a second time in the late afternoon. We snorkelled both times. Luckily, we saw a turtle which is apparently rare when not on a boat trip! Totally stunning!

This was our first visit to Cyprus and Green Bay which we enjoyed very much however I was quite alarmed by the amount of litter and plastic floating around in the bay. There wasn't many bins in the area. If litter picking equipment was available, I would have done my bit to help. For an area renown for turtles, you would think it would be a priority to keep the area clean 😥

I do hope more is done to keep this place beautiful and safe for the amazing marine life.
