Cyprus is popular for its crystal clear waters especially when the temperature of the water remains pleasantly above 25 degrees celsius during the summer period. With these temperatures don’t be surprised to find yourself swimming or even diving during the winter periods.

The clarity of the sea is excellent and in turn allows an excellent diving experience.

The visibility of the water at 30 meters below sea level is very good. On most occasions the sea is calm allowing people of all ages to truly enjoy a memorable diving experience.
