Cyprus – Strange Underwater Rock Formations & An Amazing Wreck Dive
Our dive trip to Cyprus
Undewater Cyprus has many impressive dive sites. From the huge wreck of the Zenobia, to exciting shore dives in volcanic sculpted bathymetry, diving in Cyprus has something for every diver. Cyprus is an island of two nations. The Turkish speaking province to the north and the Greek speaking province to the south. Like most Mediterranean islands, Cyprus has stunning beaches, while in the northern part a large mountain sweeps across the country.

MV Zenobia wreck
Vera K wreck
We visited Cyprus in July 2019 for nine days, staying for three days in Paphos before moving up to Larnaca for the remainder of the trip. You can read more about the dive sites we visited in the posts below.
Larnaca is a large town with a mix of working locals and tourists. The main diving attraction of Larnaca is the MS Zenobia, a huge roll-on roll-off ferry which sunk just of Finikoudes Beach, a sandy strip in the city center.
The coastal area around Paphos has interesting underwater topography just meters from the shore. Diving in Paphos is mainly shore diving, although exciting wrecks lurk a short boat ride away from the harbour.
