ESTONIA

Blessed with all the elements that make a diver’s paradise, Cyprus attracts visitors from all over the world for 

its favourable weather conditions, top-ranking wrecks and diverse marine life. With warm waters that range from

16-27 degrees almost all-year-round, crystal clear waters, the island enjoys one of the

longest diving seasons in the Mediterranean, further enhanced by fantastic up to 40 meters underwater 

visibility- thanks to an absence of plankton.


A range of wrecks, spectacular underwater caves and tunnels, and interesting paths await exploration 

– always with the promise of discovering somethingunique, from the remains of ancient amphora and stone 

anchors, to the exotic residents of their underwater worlds.

WHY CYPRUS?

The ultimate resort destination
