The under water world of the Ayia Napa area

Cyprus possesses quite a few places one can dive and experience the spectacular deep of the island. Visitors and locals alike are quite keen to dive and view the many under water attractions, which feature ship wrecks and stunning natural beauty.

Two of the most famous diving spots around the island are located in the Ayia Napa area.

 

1. The Caves, Ayia Napa

This is not one of the typical diving sites one can find around the island; it’s a complex system of caves, with a seabed filled with amphorae, due to the many ancient shipwrecks that happened in the area. More at My Cyprus Insider

2. Green Bay, Protaras

Another of the most famous diving sites. Easy to navigate and handle, Green Bay is bustling with marine life! At the deepest part of the site, a visitor can discover underwater statues, which leave them wide-eyed! More at My Cyprus Insider

The Cape Greco Environmental Information & Education Centre

The Cape Greco National Park is one of the most fascinating landscapes on the stunning east coast of Cyprus.

The park’s natural beauty combines spectacular sea caves and a rocky headland laced with sandy coves, making it one of the most sought after places one can explore on the island.

Whilst most people know about Cape Greco, its natural beauty and the experience it offers, there is a building that has been puzzling visitors all along. The Cape Greco Environmental Center was constructed with a minimalistic exterior design, without using land excavation or concrete, blending harmonically into its surroundings. Thus, its creators were awarded with the 2016 Cyprus State Architecture Award.

No matter its exterior, what not a lot of people know, is that by visiting the interior, one can have the opportunity to be educated about the land and marine ecosystems of the Cape Greco peninsula. This is a great place for the whole family to visit and enjoy an educative experience which will involve learning about the local environment through the modern exhibition spaces of the Center and 3 marine aquariums.
