Clear seas and warm waters make Cyprus ideal for diving. Sea temperatures around the island range from 27ºC to 16ºC, resulting in one of the longest diving seasons in the Mediterranean, while the absence of plankton makes for great visibility.
Cyprus is quite a good place to learn to dive with some basic sites on offer, as well as progression onto the simple wrecks then onto the more adventurous Zenobia and exploring caves and tunnels.
Most dive sites are only a few minutes boat journey and there are a number of shore dives available. Larnaca attracts some attention due to the wreck of the Zenobia being located there. The Zenobia is one of the best wreck dives in the world and it needs to be dived more than once in order to appreciate the size and get an understanding of it.
Spectacular underwater caves and tunnels and a number of interesting paths are just waiting to be explored, while the remains of ancient amphora and stone anchors make it a veritable adventure!
