The coastline off the Akamas is widely regarded as the most exciting diving area on Cyprus, with sites like St. George’s Island, The Blue Lagoon, Aphrodite’s Reef and the Garden of Eden. There are virtually no tides and currents, and the sea is comfortably warm all year (average temperature 62°F in January to 82°F in August). The Latchi Watersports centre offers a wide range of professionally taught courses and was recently awarded the prestigious 5 Star Gold Palm Resort designation by PADI. Tuition is available up to Assistant Instructor level.
For qualified divers, daily dives are organised in small groups to a variety of superb sites. Night dives and scooter-assisted dives to view the once almost extinct, but now recovering, Mediterranean turtle are also available. Diving equipment is available for hire.
Please note: Double check that your insurance provides cover for dives up to 18m or 40m. Take care not to fly within 24 hours of diving or solo cave diving. Latchi Watersports have additional accident cover (enquire locally).
Small boat hire to explore the Akamas coastline is also available as is waterskiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, sailing, parasailing, banana and tube rides. Tuition is available where necessary.
