Dive Sites in Cyprus

Beside diving, tell us about the area: Historically, the location of this island has always tempted conquerors, from the Persians to the Romans and the Byzantine, each leaving their own indelible mark. One of the most remarkable sights is the Salamis Ruins near Famagusta. These exceptionally preserved ruins were founded by Teucer on his return from the Trojan wars. Other unique sites include an array of museums, notably the Abbey at Bellapais, and the magnificent St. Hilarion castle on Mount St. Hilarion near Kyrenia. This was one of the inspirations for Walt Disney's fairytale castle and is also the place where Richard the Lionheart is reputed to have been married. The key to a holiday in Northern Cyprus is relaxation, for this is a country to which time does not apply.
