St George Island

St George Island


Situated on the North Coast of Paphos within the Akamas Peninsula. This is a fantastic day out for those looking for a chance to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. Crystal clear waters and the amazing landscape of the green mountains that slip into the sea, make it an excellent place to enjoy diving.  

St George’s Island is also known to locals as Kakoskali. Kakoskali roughly translates to ‘bad steps’, it was given this name due to the different depth levels. 

This island offers incredible diving and great snorkeling for all ages, there is something for everyone!

You will begin this dive on the West side of the island, this area is often sheltered from wind and waves. Once you enter the water the maximum depth is around 5m, which is great for photography or skills! Depending on your certification level there is a variety of different dive routes for you to take.

St George Island has an amazing wall feature, reaching from the seabed almost to the surface! Swim down the sloping seabed gradually or straight off the drop-off from 12m to 35m. Once you are at the seabed, look up and you will see the wall towering above you. The wall is covered in beautifully coloured algaes and corals. Here you will be able to find dotted nudibranch, slipper lobster and possibly moray eels hiding in the wall. Follow along the wall ascending to shallower water where you will be met with amazing formations. There is one particular cave which is filled with Moluccan Sweeper. These are gold coloured fish, with huge black eyes, always found hiding in the dark.

The shallows are full of gullies and swim through for you to explore. During the warmer month you can often find a green turtle swimming amongst the sea grass. One particular green turtle only has 3 fins, he is known affectionately to locals as ‘Stumpy’. Due to the shelter the shallows provide you can often find huge schools of juvenile fish, which is great for those wanting to snorkel!
