Scuba diving

The underwater world of North Cyprus is unique and fascinating, here you can enjoy one of the longest diving seasons in the Mediterranean.
The dive sites are probably the best in the Mediterranean: the sea is warm, the water is crystal clear and there is visibility for over 30 meters. What really makes North Cyprus different is the abundance of underwater life.
There are opportunities to glimpse rare turtles and octopus, you can see beautiful coral, and of possibly the most unique interest is the fact that you can see ancient amphora and pottery remains on the ocean floor dating back thousands of years.
The oldest shipwreck in the world was raised from the seabed off the coast of Kyrenia and is now housed in Kyrenia Castle. It dates back to around 300 BC – divers can seek the items including beautiful pottery remains and other fascinating relics on the sea bed around Northern Cyprus.
