A Great Success

CORAL BAY BEACH CLEAN-UP from September 23rd 2006

Last Saturday the biggest ever Beach Clean-Up in the Coral Bay area took place with a fantastic outcome. Aristo Developers sponsored 300 hats for all the participants. The meeting time was at 9:30 AM and by 10:30 AM all the hats had been given to enthusiastic people participating in this important event. The Village Inn delivered the water bottles which were greatly appreciated by everyone helping to make our beaches cleaner.

The result is astonishing and the Peyia Municipality has promptly removed and disposed of all the collected rubbish bags and other materials.

The area cleaned was from the Coral Beach Hotel to the little fisheries harbour of St. Georges. Everybody has shown a huge effort to collect as much as possible. More than 800 rubbish bags have been filled with all sorts of refuse. Many unusual items such as a bicycle, an old safe, various oil drums as well as a large number of fishing nets and hooks have been collected. The American Academy Paphos alone has come with around one hundred students, parents and teachers.

In the evening various beach cleaners have met up at the Village Inn for a well deserved and entertaining pint of beer or glass of wine.

We would like to thank everybody very much for all the effort displayed during that day and all the hard work by collecting so much rubbish. Hopefully we were able to create a bit of awareness to keep our beautiful beaches cleaner

We also would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the sponsors of this event. Without them the event would not have been such a success.

Thanks to the Mayor of Peyia, the Municipality of Peyia, Aristo Developers, the American Academy, Europrint, and the Village Inn in Kisonerga.

A big thank you goes to Rock FM which has played the advertising spots for days, as well as the many interviews before and after the event.

This was just the first of many Beach Clean-Ups and we hope that we will be seeing you all again for the next big one, which will be even bigger.

Thanks again to all of you for making a big difference

DIVE SITES

Coral Bay Harbour

A very easy accessible dive site for getting back into the water and comfortably dive around the Coral Bay Harbour Wall venturing for the many different creatures between the rocks. Maximum depth 7 metres.

 

St. Georges Harbour

This picturesque fishing village to the north of Paphos Town, offers diving for all qualifications and experiences. This is due to the depths ranging from 6 to 36 metres. Dives start inside the harbour a go along the harbour wall. It is a nursing spot for juvenile barracudas, who cruise here at leisure.

 

St. Georges Island

A short boat trip takes you to the incredible St. Georges Island just off the coast by St. Georges Harbour. Offering a variety of dive sites around the island makes this site very popular for all levels of divers as again the depths range from 5 metres to 30 metres.

 

Manijin Island

This smaller island is reached by a 10 minute boat ride from Coral Bay Harbour. This is a very scenic dive with a wall, a spectacular cave and swim-through. The cave is covered with a variety of colourful calciferous algae. This dive is ideal for the beginner as well as the experienced diver with dive depths from 5 metres to 24 metres.

 

Amphitheatre

As the name of this dive site suggests it consists of a "replica" of an Amphitheatre. This has been carved into the underwater coastline by the natural sea currents and there are a several around the island.. A very nice and easy dive to enjoy the beautiful underwater scenery. Suitable for all levels. This shore dive takes you to a maximum depth of 14 metres.

 

White River

At the entrance of the Akamas National Park this dive site offers a variety of gullies and a fantastic underwater scenery. With a maximum depth of around 11 metres this dive is ideal for beginners but also offers a lot for the experienced diver too.

 

Cynthiana Beach

Starting at a natural pool this dive will take you to a lot of overhangs, interesting rock formations and gullies. Dive depth ranging from 6 metres to 12 metres making this shore dive very enjoyable for all levels. This dive site is also ideal for fantastic night dives.

 

Wreck of the Achilleas

The Achilleas was a Greek vessel which mysteriously exploded in 1975 and then sunk and came to rest in 11 meters of water in 1975. The wreck lies up side down in three main sections and offers a lot to see under the bow and the ripped open stern. The bronze propeller and the engine of the ship are just a few highlights of this dive site.

 

Wreck of the 'Vera K'

The Vera K is a Lebanese Freighter which grounded in shallow water. It then has been used for targeting practice by the Cypriote Military. In 1974 the ship was declared a hazard to other ships and was blown up. The explosion produced a crater which shelters the Vera K at a depth of 11 meters. The wreck features many interesting areas in particular the partially intact bridge. Beside the wreck this dive site also offers a very nice and colourful archway. This is an ideal dive for all levels and is the first dive in our two tank dives outings.

 

Amphorae Caves

A fantastic dive of archaeological importance. The dive takes you to depth from 5 metres to 12 metres where you can find and explore several caves and gullies. There are a few swimthroughs which consist of encrusted amphorae in the roof of the cave. According to archaeologists this happened due to movements of the seabed many thousand years ago. This brilliant dive is the second dive of our two tank dives outings. Not to be missed.

 

Day Trip to the Zenobia

This is one of the best wreck dives you will ever make. The Zenobia is in the top ten listed wrecks world-wide. The 'Roll on Roll Off' ferry sank in 1980 just one mile off shore. With a length of 178 metres and most cargo still in place this dive is a must for every experienced diver staying in Cyprus. The wreck lies on its port side with many of the 108 trucks visible. The depth of the Zenobia starts at 17 metres and reaches the seabed at 42 metres. This daytrip requires an early start and includes two dives on the Zenobia, a brilliantly prepared lunch and all transfers. If you have dived the wreck once you always want to go back. Nitrox is ideal on these two dives. This dive is only suitable for experienced divers.

 

Day Trip to the Latchi

Latchi is a beautiful little village on the North Coast of Cyprus, a 45 minutes drive by car from Coral Bay. This beautiful area offers spectacular dive sites. You will be doing two dives on that trip; The first one at the beautiful St. Georges Island and after a relaxing lunch break in either the picturesque Latchi Harbour or in one of the bays to another local dive site. This daytrip is suitable for all levels with depth between 5 metres and 35 metres.

 

Day Trip to Jubilee Shoals

This is a fantastic dive just off the coast of Pissouri a 40 minute drive from Coral Bay. A ten minutes boat ride will take you to the dive site. The dives are taking you to the beautiful caves at around 36 metres and offer a spectacular scene. The second dive is also in the same area after a relaxing surface interval with tea and coffee and a snack. This dive is only suitable for the experienced divers. Dive depth 40 metres.

 

Non Divers are welcome on all our daytrips. Take the opportunity to go Snorkelling and have a look what is going on down there. (For all daytrips minimum participant numbers apply)
