Dive Sites In Protaras and Pernera Cyprus Suitable For The Beginner
For the beginner diver, there are plenty of nice shallow dives available and these dives have the added bonus of being shore dives. Shore dives mean that you can start your dive from the shore in shallow waters and slowly descend to deeper water at a safe and controlled pace. Most of the dive sites in and around Protaras and Pernera are accessible from the beach and are a firm favourite for the many divers that visit Cyprus just wishing to have a leisurely, relaxed dive.
These dive sites are generally 7-10 M maximum depth and have plenty of fish and other marine life.
Dive Sites That Are Suitable For Advanced Divers
Obviously, if you are a more advanced diver looking for a bit more adventure, then the more shallow dives may not be what you are looking for. However, many advanced divers that visit Cyprus specifically for the Zenobia wreck, still enjoy the more relaxing shallow dives such as Green Bay. This is simply due to the fact that, there is plenty to see and that these dive sites are great for a refresher dive or simply practicing your skills, especially if it is a while since your last dive.
The major and most famous wreck dive in Cyprus is the Zenobia, which is in Larnaca.
