Cyprus

Cyprus, the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, it divided in a Greek-Cypriote- and Turkish. Both have a rich culture and great beaches and therefore Cyprus is a popular tourist destination. There are a range of astonishing archaeological sites, including ancient tombs, Neolithic houses, Roman mosaics, Venetian walls, Byzantine castles and churches, monasteries and mosques. Cyprus has around 50 divespots, ranging from rocky formations and walls to shipwrecks in clear waters.

After Cyprus sunk the “Zenobia” in 1980, one of the biggest wrecks in the Mediterranean, Cyprus became much more popular diving destination.
