De Costa Bay is a sheltered dive site which is situated directly in front of the hotel De Costa, in Protaras Cyprus.
Because of its shallow nature it is an ideal site for beginners and training dives. After walking from the beach in to into crystal clear water, the dive takes you across the bay to the sunken columns & statue of Atlantis. Excellent opportunity to get some photos in Atlantis with the statues. The dive heads in to a small canyon and fantastic rock and amphora formations before coming back across the sandy seabed. Head back to the exit point/shore and over the many boulders, rocks and crevices that are a great hiding place for fish of all types.
On this dive site you may see Flying Gurnards and Tuna, Turtles. Most likely to see the ever present Bream & Brown and Rainbow Wrasse, Parrot Fish, Cleaver Fish and Damselfish, Weaver fish. This is a very tranquil and pleasant dive for all.
