Scuba diving at St George’s Island will give you a full day’s adventure in the Akamas Marine Reserve, on Cyprus’s northwest coast, a little over an hour’s road trip from the centre. With plenty to do, there is stunning scenery, historical sites, excellent food and thrilling scuba diving. A short boat trip from the fishing village of Latchi, the slopes of St. George’s Island abound in marine life, including moray eels and grouper. You can descend to 35 meters to explore the underwater caves. Sheltered from western winds, St George’s Island is a good alternative when other west coast sites are not suitable.
