The crystal blue waters of Chrysochou Bay, just off the coast of the Akamas Peninsula, provide excellent visibility for divers. The area around the small, uninhabited St. George’s Island offers an especially wide range of underwater sights. On the west side of the island, divers of all skill levels can enjoy a plunge from 10 metres to 32 metres in depth. More advanced divers can continue down the slope to a depth of 40 metres. Among the marine creatures you can see are multicoloured sea hares and big-eyed squirrel fish; check crevices for moray eels, octopi, and flower-shaped peacock worms. You can also enter the generous mouth of a cave just 8 metres from the surface. On the south-easterly side of the island, you can make your way through a series of tunnels. This area is very attractive for schools of fish—look for the cornet fish with its tubular snout, the squid and its tapering fin, and commercially popular species like bream, grouper, and tuna. Skilled divers can descend 42 metres to investigate anchors from the sixteenth century. Between St. George’s Island and the coast of the Akamas Peninsula sits St. George’s Reef. This area is comparatively shallow, allowing you to locate shards of ancient amphora on the sea’s floor. You can swim among rock formations and the remains of a sunken yacht, where groupers and crabs live in abundance. Guests of Anassa can work with our beachfront partner, Latchi Watersports, to visit these and other dive sites just off our shore.
