Diving in Cyprus

Quick facts

Crystal clear azure waters await you in Cyprus, lapping against ancient white rock formations. Bordered by vineyards and prehistoric ruins, the Mediterranean beckons.

The best time to dive in Cyprus is from March to November, when you can find gorgeous clear blue water and calm seas. Winter storms can whip up the Mediterranean, but Cyprus still remains one of the best places in the region to dive throughout the year.

There are many memorable dives in Cyprus, but some of the favorites are Amphorae Caves, the Chapel, and the Zenobia. The Amphorae Caves are found off Paphos, where you can find ancient pottery, still intact. You can reach the Chapel from the shore, making it an excellent place for night diving. The Zenobia is the most famous wreck dive on Cyprus, and the trucks chained to the deck are not to be missed.
