The climate makes that the temperature of the water in Cyprus is actually friendly for divers throughout the year. The most attractive diving season runs from May to October. In addition to the high temperature of water in the season of 27°C, the island attracts transparent coastal waters. The temperatures are the highest in July and August and you have to be prepared for the heat of 36°C.

In the coldest months, from January to March, divers descend under water on average at 16 °C. So it is worth to take a dry suit in this period. For fans of sunny weather, Cyprus is ideal because for most of the year on the island we have intense sunlight.
