Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

Atlantis found off Cyprus – again?

2 Comments


I recall going to the Ajax Hotel not long after we came to live in Cyprus to see the presentation for one of Robert Sarmasts’ expeditions.

Although it was very interesting and of course, I would just love for it to be true, there was nothing that really convinced us over and above all the other “would be” Atlantis findings.

It now looks like the search for Atlantis off the island of Cyprus is set to continue so lets keep our fingers crossed he finds it. Just think of the increase in Cyprus tourism 😉

Could the lost city of Atlantis be here?

This below, taken from the Cyprus Mail online version of the newspaper:

ATLANTIS researcher Robert Sarmast has returned to Cyprus after a four-year hiatus ahead of a third expedition to try and locate the lost ancient city, he believes is underwater off Cyprus.

Sarmast said yesterday he wanted to be here for the Kataklysmos festival, or the ‘festival of the flood’. This will be held islandwide next weekend.

“The Kataklysmos festival is really about the great flood that sunk Atlantis, so it’s not surprising to me that the celebrations are unique to Cyprus,” said Sarmast.

Sarmast’s team plan to film a documentary during the Kataklysmos festival, while preparing for a third expedition.

Sarmast conducted two highly-publicised expeditions to find the remains of Atlantis in 2004 and 2006. The expedition utilised state-of-the-art deep sea equipment to survey the seafloor between Cyprus and Syria.  Their attempt to prove that the legendary lost island was more than a myth was funded in part by the History Channel, private investors, and the CTO.  Sarmast’s theories on Cyprus are laid out in his book Discovery of Atlantis: The Startling Case for the Island of Cyprus, which was based on the writings of Plato.

“There is really a mystery within a mystery associated with this project, regarding Atlantis and the Garden of Eden, and it’s time for Cypriots to know the full story,” said Sarmast.

During his previous expeditions, aSonar scans of the area explored showed what Sarmast believes to be the remains of two man-made walls. He claimed to have “definitely” found Atlantis after the sonar scans appeared to have located a rise on the seabed around a mile down in an area halfway between Cyprus and Syria.

The American researcher has been challenged by several scientists, who say all he has found are old mud volcanoes.
