Few feelings can compare to the ones you feel when you feel the warm sand between your toes, of the sun kissing your skin and the sense of the salty breeze tingling with your nose while you gaze upon the immense view of the gleaming, blue waters of the sea.

Zenobia Wreck – Larnaca Bay
The Zenobia Wreck is ranked among the ten best wrecks in the world. Zenobia is a Swedish ferry that captised and sank on its maiden voyage in 1980, giving it the name ‘The Titanic of the Mediterranean.’ The ferry currently lays on her port side in a layer of sand and rock. The 172 metre ferry was carrying 108 tractor-trailers carrying a variety of cargo, including cars, military equipment, food and telecommunication systems, as well as a million eggs which remain undamaged under water.
The wreck that is known among divers as Manitzin is located on the island of Geroniso, between Laras and Paphos and opposite the Ayios Georgios harbour. It is 10-15 metres deep and can be accessed either by land or by boat.

Aphrodite’s Rock – Paphos
According to Greek mythology, the Goddess Aphrodite emerged from the foams of the sea at this location and, therefore, is known as her birthplace. This idyllic and unique sight can be enjoyed throughout the year.

The Akamas Peninsual, as described by the Conservation Management Plan of World Bank/EU, covers around 230 square kilometres and is located at the western end of the island. It is an area of unique natural beauty that continues to grow despite the effects of development. The uniqueness of the area for Cyprus, and for the whole of the Mediterranean, is centered on its precious ecology. The diversity of flora and fauna living in this relatively small area is truly impressive.
