We are lucky to be located on the edge of the beautiful Akamas National park, with clear calm waters at all depths. Some days we can have up to 40 metres diving visibility!
We have over a dozen diving sites on our stretch of coast and many people travel the length of the island to dive some of our favourites. Rich in history, these waters hold many tales about shipwrecks, roman harbours and volcanic disturbances.
The marine life is varied with dozens of different types of fish, including tuna and barracuda, octopus, squid, lobsters, crabs, moray eels, peacock worms, rays, turtles and even dolphins! The underwater topography is also interesting, providing us with the opportunity to dive in small caves, swim throughs and a few wall / drop-off dives.
Latchi Watersports Centre is the only dive centre in Cyprus to offer Do It Yourself diving.
You can rent one of our speedboats, diving equipment, safety equipment and a member of staff as your surface cover (if requested). Discover the wonders of diving in the Akamas National Park, with complete freedom!
