Imagine a Mediterranean island bathed in warm, clear blue water. Long, sandy beaches punctuate the predominantly indented and rocky coastline, and the culture and cuisine are unmistakably Mediterranean. This is Cyprus, and it’s nestled in the northeast corner of the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. From simple, sandy-bottom dives for beginners to epic deep dives, the island’s diving offers something for everyone.

Cyprus Sea Life

Indigenous life flourishes among the rocky shorelines and outcrops around Cyprus. This warm corner of the Mediterranean offers divers an exciting diversion from the usually cold temperatures and deep, dark waters. Plenty of fish, crustaceans, octopus and eels can be found on the reefs, and further out, you can encounter dolphins. Green and loggerhead turtles are regular visitors, especially in breeding season. And a reserve near Akrotiri brings divers face-to-face with groupers, moray eels, bream and bass. Plus, the astounding collection of sponges and soft and hard corals, paired with their ever present entourage of fish, is idyllic in the shimmering blue light.

How to Get There

Many people that visit Cyprus come on a cruise or tour, but there is an abundance of options for independent travelers. You can fly directly in or take a boat. There are two main international airports in Cyprus, Larnaca International and Paphos International. Restrictions have eased on crossing the border between both halves of Cyprus, so land travel is a cinch.
