Discover underwater world of the Mediterranean...
The pleasant climate and the warm waters of Mediterranean make North Cyprus an ideal destination for scuba diving nearly all year around.
The best diving points on the island of Cyprus are located on the north of the island in Girne (Kyrenia). The reefs which run parallel to the Five Finger Mountains are formed 12-70 metres apart.
You can easily see all the underwater life of the Mediterranean at these reefs which appeal and address the needs of sporting divers as well as technical divers. The water temperature in North Cyprus is 27 degrees and visibility 30 metres in the summer months. The current which generally flows from east to the west and the positioning of the reefs makes it easier to dive.
The oldest sunken ship ruins in North Cyprus were found in a location about one mile from the Kyrenia Harbour. Currently diving takes place in the area from which the ruin of the sunken ship - which is now on display in Kyrenia Castle – was recovered. It is still possible to see the platform in the area used during the work to recover the sunken ship and amphora.
