Cyclop’s Cave
You may not come to Cyprus and not dive here! Making this one of the best sites in Cyprus. Hard to get to due to the rough road leading there but quite the reward if you are lucky enough to dive there. Amazing rock formations and sea weed forest coupled with abundant marine life at times! Depths from 12m to 40m and even more for the technical diving types! Expect trumpet fish, octopus, and other fish especially in the colder parts of the year!

Sea Caves
An easy shallow dive with maximum depth of 12m consisting of holes, three navigable tunnel/caves and overhanging rocks. Varied marine life to see depending on the season. You will be amazed at some of the colourful residents whether they be Ornate Wrasse or Bearded Fireworms! Interesting stuff!

Green Bay
Located in the Protaras area, a very easy access shallow dive with maximum depth of 12m. Great for beginners.

Pirate’s Cove
Quite near Green Bay this bay has a secluded beach, frequented by local and offers a great dive site environment. Shallow reefs and boulders will give you plenty to look at. Added to this the fact that it is a quite hard to get to site, will propably ensure you avoid all the tourists. This is a great little secret…or was…

Mimosa
Two interesting reefs stretching perpendicular to the shore with a maximum depth of 5m to 10m. Great for beginners!

Blue Lagoon

Great relaxed dive and surface time destination rolled it one. Small downside to this great fun dive site are the regular boat visits during the summer. Stay close to shore and keep an eye out. Max depth 12m.

Crows Reef
The boat trip and the easy dive on this reef makes it an enjoyable day. Take a picnic. Depth up to 18m.

Shallow Reef
Enjoyable boat dive from this friendly reef with nice rock formation. Depth from 13m to 18m. Accessible to all divers.

Cape Point
Located opposite Cape Grekko table top rock landmark with depths from 12m to 30m.

Konnos Point (Cape Awkward)
One of the most popular and beautiful sites around the Cape Grekko area, perhaps of Cyprus. The picturesque harbour which is one of the busiest beaches during the summertime is home at its cape to one of the most beautiful reefs in Cyprus. There are also amazing rock formations here! Dive starts around 2m – 3m but the most interesting areas are found between 20m – 40m and it is easily accessed via the beach!

Chapel Bay
A Pleasant dive from the base of this cliff. An easy access to this location makes it very popular. Depth from 9m up to 21m. Near the Fisherman’s Chapel where a ceremony is held each year to bless the sea and ask for the safety of the local fishermen. There is a cave and the sea bed drops to approximately 30m. A variety of marine life can be seen here, even turtles sometimes!

Amphorae Bay
At the depth of 17m you will discover ancient remains of amphora’s and stone anchors. Do not take anything away, it is an offense to take the treasures and of course means that there would be nothing to see before long.
