With an abundance of sandy beaches and a spectular coastline that stretches for hundreds of miles, North Cyprus is the perfect year-round playground for those who love the sea.
Swimming is safe and exhilarating. Shimmering waters that rarely drop below 17ºC make snorkelling a pleasure. With one of the longest diving seasons from April through to the end of December, North Cyprus is a premier diving destination in the Mediterranean, with exceptional visibility of upto 30 metres underwater. Top dive centres offer a variety of dive packs and courses ranging from shallow calm reefs to the more exciting caverns, walls, drop offs and caves. It is suitable for children, amateur adults as well as professionals as you are guided by trained staff and given quality equipment.
For those who prefer to be on the water than in it, sailing, windsurfing and water-skiing are widely available, along with parasailing and jet-skiing.
Following an active day in the sea, you can enjoy a relaxing Turkish bath in any of the various local spas found along the coast. In the spring you can enjoy watching local yatch races.
