  1. Deep-sea adventures

There’s nothing more fascinating than discovering what lies at the bottom of the sea, and Cyprus is an all-year round diver’s haven, with countless spots around the island to leave you wide-eyed under the mask! If you’re holidaying at the Elias Beach Hotel in Limassol, you can enjoy one of the most popular dive sites in the area – the Lady Thetis wreck. To be found at a depth of 18m, the German construction was sunk in Cyprus waters in 2014, giving divers the chance to enjoy easy swim throughs and penetrations for the more adventurous. Those holidaying at the Olympic Lagoon Resort in Agia Napa can enjoy blissful dives at the Cape Greco caves, while all of our Paphos hotels are within easy reach of the Amphora Caves filled with ancient ceramics. The splendors of Akamas dives and the popular Devil’s Head are also within easy reach.

  1. Catching the wind

How about combining a day out at sea with a different kind of fun-filled sporty adventure? Strong southwesterly winds make Cyprus an ideal kitesurfing and windsurfing destination, and there are many places to grab onto a board in open waters. Limassol, and the coastline that stretches towards Paphos, is an ideal base for wilder moments, and there are plenty of beaches with trained instructors on hand near our hotels. Limassol Surf House next to the Limassol Nautical Club is a great place to start, while those in the know also rave about Kitesurfing Cyprus. The weather in Cyprus also makes it an ideal opportunity for adrenaline junkies to enjoy the ultimate extreme experience of skydiving and free fall, parachuting and bungee jumping, available in Xylotymbou, Dhekeleia and Agia Napa; just a short distance from Olympic Lagoon Resort Agia Napa.
