Devils Head

Devils Head

Devils Head is beneath a tiny island within the Akamas Peninsula. This dive site is one of the furthest from the harbour but is well worth the journey!

This dive site is one of our dive specials so you wont see it on our standard schedule.

For this dive a minimum certification level of Scuba Diver is required. 

If your last dive was more than 1 year ago then you will be required to complete a refresher before joining any of our scheduled dives.

This dive site is one of our dive specials so you wont see it on our standard schedule.

Located next to a tiny island this dive site has a lot to offer. 

On top of the reef there is a big tear shaped bowl which 360 degree over hangs. 

This site also has a cave which is not for the faint hearted, the cave is fairly narrow and in complete darkness. Travel through the reef and make sure to stay close to your buddy!

We will meet at our well-equipped diving centre in Paphos Harbour. Our friendly and helpful PADI professionals will help you with equipment and begin with an interesting and informative dive briefing. Unless you have your own diving gear, all equipment is supplied by us. We spend a few minutes checking your sizes and will fit you with the suitable gear. All of our diving equipment is well maintained and serviced regularly to ensure your safety and comfort.

Once everyone is ready we will take a short walk to the Paphos harbour where we will board Cydive II. The journey from the harbour to Devils Head takes around 50 minutes by boat. (In the case of bumpy seas, we will drive to a small fishing harbour, St George Harbour, and board the boat, from here it is just 20 minutes to the dive site.)

You will enter the water on the shore side of the island onto the reef at around 5m. From there you follow the reef wall towards a tear-shaped bowl. An amazing feature of this bowl is an eerie layer of silt that sits on top of clear water. Within the bowl there are overhangs around the edge which you can swim under. The top of the reef is at 7m whilst the bottom of the bowl is at 15m.

After leaving the bowl you will drop off the reef to find a hidden swim through. The swim through is completed hidden within the reef, with small entries/exits along the 30m tunnel. This swim through isn’t for the faint hearted, some sections are completely dark whilst others have natural light.

Following on from the swim through there is a series of canyons and gullies guiding you through the shallows, with small swim throughs and overhangs along the way.

Throughout the year we often see a variety of nudibranch at this dive site including pink Flabellina and dotted sea slug. In the deeper sections of this dive we often see dusky grouper and lionfish hiding amongst the rocks. For those on the top ridge you will see and abundance of juvenile fish including wrasse, damselfish and sea bream.

Complimentary fresh fruit and refreshments will be served on the boat before returning to the harbour. Back at the dive centre our PADI professionals will debrief you and help you to complete your logbooks.
