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.

Diving in Cyprus – something new to try.

If you’re already a qualified diver these two videos could be of interest to you if you’re thinking of Cyprus for a holiday.

The first video below is taken from the Alexandria – a wrecked fishing vessel. It’s situated very close to the stricken Zenobia cargo ship in Larnaca bay.

The Zenobia (below) sank off Larnaca in 1980 and has always been popular as a dive site but some divers have died there and at the moment I’m not certain if diving is still possible on the Zenobia. If you are interested to dive here it’s recommended you check with one of the dive offices before booking a holiday to do this specifically.

From Wikipedia: At around 2:30am 7 June 1980, the Zenobia capsized and sank in Larnaca Bay to a depth of roughly 42 metres (138 ft), taking her estimated £200 million worth of cargo with her. According to local legend, the Zenobia’s owners never collected the insurance money and no formal investigation has ever been published. Since sinking she has become a popular dive site for visitors to Cyprus and was named one of the world’s top ten dive sites by The Times in March 2003.

If you want to learn to dive in Cyprus there are many dive instructors sites to choose from.
Here are a small selection of websites to give you an idea:
CyDive – Paphos based
Easy Divers – Protaras, Ayia Napa based
Alpha Divers – Larnaca based
Aloha Divers – Limassol based

I'm "Shell" or Michele - formerly a UK Expat living in Cyprus since March 2004. Sadly, we had to return to UK in April 2016 due to family illness. We now live "over Wyre" where the "River meets the Sea" at Knott End on Sea, Fylde coast, Lancashire. If you like my photos, you can see more of them on Flickr (Thulborn-Chapman Photography): and don't forget to check me out on Twitter too - you can find me: @CyprusPictures aka Fylde Coast Musings Enjoy!
