Dive sites in Cyprus
Diving in the Mediterranean Sea offers great visibility, warm temperatures, minimal underwater current and interesting dive sites. You will find something here for every diver, whether you’re new to the diving world or an experienced diver!
Around Cyprus we have a whole range of dive sites! From sites with fantastic archaeological features and amazing natural underwater topography to hidden wrecks. Our dive sites offer a range of depths from 12-40 meters.
Scattered around the coast, there are various wrecks of different sizes. The wrecks vary from completely intact, to having mysteriously exploded! Some of the wrecks, sank through natural events, whereas others have been placed to create an artificial reef for marine life to inhabit.
Cyprus also has its own unique marine life. Some divers say the Mediterranean is lacking in marine life, but the truth is you just need to know where to look! Here we have great macro marine life including beautiful nudibranch, shrimp and ocean worms. Cyprus is also fortunate to be a breeding ground for green and loggerhead turtles. Turtles can often be seen grazing or swimming around many of our dive sites!
When diving in Cyprus, there is one dive site that is at the very top of every divers list… This is of course the wreck of MS Zenobia! Laying just off the shores of Larnaca this is a dive not to be missed.
Zen, as she is affectionately known by locals, has been rated one of the top wreck dives in the world! An ideal site for all advanced divers whether it is your first wreck dive or you have lots of experience.
