With a whole underwater world waiting to be explored, coral reefs and all sorts of fish to spot, snorkelling is the perfect summertime activity. And if you’re lucky enough, you may even spot a green turtle in midsummer as they arrive to lay their eggs on the island. Here are some of the best snorkelling spots in Cyprus:
1. Cape Greco, Ayia Napa
With warm crystal clear waters, glorious coral reefs and colourful marine life, Cape Greco in Ayia Napa is an idyllic spot to explore the magnificent underwater world.
2. Manolis Bay, Akamas
Manolis Cove is right beside the well-known blue lagoon. The idyllic sheltered bay with deep turquoise waters has a rather rapid drop to about 5 metres. You can snorkel into the caves and head to the sandy bottom in the middle of the bay.
3. White Rocks, beside Governor’s Beach, Limassol
Another magnificent rocky part of the coastline, an unspoilt stretch of chalk coastline. The white rocks, give way to gorgeous pebbly coves and make for the perfect spot to take a plunge and enjoy a good bit of snorkelling.
