Cyprus is a mountainous island with a varied coastline spanning 648 kilometers. The island is
a popular vacation destination and welcomes many, many tourists every year. It offers historical monuments,
delicious cuisine and of course: water sports. Lots of them. And when it comes to water sports, diving is one of
Cyprus's best attractions.
It is worth mentioning that on the island, traffic is left-handed. The prices of rental cars are comparable
(or lower) than those in other EU countries. Important detail pertaining to rental cars is also that if you plan to
cross the border and go scuba diving or explore the Turkish part of the island: check before renting whether the rental
company allows their car to travel to the other side. Only some "rent a car" facilities have this option, and the
insurance of the others does not cover the Turkish part.
However, at the border there is a booth where such insurance can be purchased on the spot. A cool thing about rental
cars in Cyprus is that they all, always have red registration plates, and that makes the island natives aware that
whoever is driving is a tourist. Thanks to this, the natives have much more patience and almost never sound their horns,
even when visitors make major mistakes: like driving on the wrong side of the road.
Cyprus is the perfect place for diving. It's a great place to meet a turtle, find fragments of ancient amphorae and
even artifacts (such as anchors) that no archeologist has ever found before. Cyprus is a place where you swim with large
groupers and encounter sea creatures that you would expect to see in the Red Sea, not the Mediterranean. Cyprus is
the ideal spot for your next dive.
