Dive sites in Cyprus

Our diving area

Even though Cyprus is not (yet) known as a diving destination, there is a lot more to see here than just the Zenobia. There are natural bays with perfect water conditions, impressive rock formations with caves and tunnels, various wrecks and artificial reefs as well as an underwater museum - and all of this right on our doorstep. With the overview map of our dive sites we want to show you how varied you can make your Cyprus vacation.

Liberty_03_edited.png

Liberty wreck

The Liberty wreck was purposefully sunk off the Paralimni coast on May 27, 2009. The Russian cargo ship is to be taken over by the underwater world and become a new home for many fish. It is exciting to see how nature revitalizes the wreck from year to year.

Depth: 23-27m / Length: 37m

Difficulty level: medium

Cyclops_Cave_02.jpg

Cyclops Cave

A nice dive site with several diving options. It is suitable for deep dives up to 40 meters deep. However, a shallower dive can also be very interesting. A natural underwater road makes navigating to embark and disembark easy. You can find moray eels, lionfish, turtles, squid and whatever else swims in front of your mask.

Depth: 40m

Level of difficulty: easy-medium

Highlight: Fur formations, Lion Fish

Musan

Jason deCaires Taylor's Underwater Museum opened on August 1, 2021. The museum consists of various sculptures. The underwater world slowly begins to settle in the museum. Algae have grown on the artificial trees and kelp sculptures and small schools of fish have taken up residence. Crayfish and cuttlefish are also more and more common. You can find out more here.

Depth: 10m

Difficulty level: easy

Highlight: sculptures

Nemesis_03

Nemesis  wreck

In December 2013 the wreck was sunk as planned right next to the Liberty wreck in Paralimni. Previously, holes were cut into the ship's bow, which now form great swimm-troughs under water.

Depth: 15-27m / Length: 35m

Difficulty level: medium

Highlight: wreck

Caves_03_edited.jpg

Caves

An easy dive site with a maximum depth of 12 meters with many caves, tunnels and overhanging rocks. Look into the hiding spots and discover many different species of fish, as well as squid and moray eels. The caves are particularly suitable for beautiful underwater photos!

Depth: 14m

Level of difficulty: easy-medium

Octopus_Reef_03.jpg

Octopus Reef

Octopus Reef is a pristine reef bank off the Paralimnis coast. At an average depth of 30 meters, octopuses, lionfish, moray eels and much more can be discovered. The reef can be reached by boat and is only suitable for experienced divers due to the depth and sometimes currents.

Depth: 26-33m

Difficulty level: medium - difficult

Highlight: octopus, moraines

Zenobia

This wreck is one of the top wrecks for diving in the world! In 1980 it sank just off the coast of Larnaka on its maiden voyage. The crew was able to save themselves, but his load is still at a depth of 18-42m. Large schools of groupers, barracuda, tuna and other predatory fish visit the wreck every year. Learn more here.
