Cyprus is truly an ideal place for water sports. With the very hot summers
and beautiful beaches that can be reached from any point of the island
in less than an hour, it’s water sports fanatics’ paradise
There are hundreds of water sport companies all over Cyprus with instructors
that are more than willing to give lessons to beginners in, sailing, paragliding,
water-skiing, jet-skiing and windsurfing. Unfortunately, these sports
are not too cheap on the island, but they’re definitely worth the
Paragliding may appear to be extremely risky, but it’s certainly
worth a try in order to be have the ability to capture the magnificent
view of the crowded beaches and crystal blue waters from a great height.
Two of the most popular sports due to the crystal-clear waters and rough
coastline are snorkelling and scuba-diving. There are thousands of striking
colourful fish and sea shells in the depths of the sea that capture the
interest of divers. Fortunately, sharks don’t pay regular visits
to the island’s waters.
The core marine sports locations on the island are: Agia Napa-Protaras;
along the Larnaka Bay; around Limassol and Lady’s Mile Beach; at
Paphos and Coral Bay; the Polis-Latsi area as well as Famagusta and Kyrenia
in the Turkish occupied area of Cyprus.
The areas above are easily accessible and offer all the services needed
for people that are visiting the island on a two to three week stay. Professionals
on the other hand may need to rent out a four-wheel drive and explore
the rather remote coves that are located around the island.
