Lovers Bridge Cape Greco is home to one of the most amazing and well-known natural bridges. We call it the Bridge of Lovers. It is a masterpiece of nature. This special place is very popular because of the romance it exudes. The bridge of the lovers or the bridge of love is very beautiful and one of the most romantic places in all of Cyprus. Visits to the bridge from newlyweds and couples has become almost a tradition. Sometimes wedding ceremonies also take place here. The Bridge of Lovers is a natural rock arch bridge whose edge juts out from an elevated coastal plateau into the crystal clear, turquoise and emerald sea. The bridge was formed by natural processes, entirely without human help. Legend has it that a wish will come true if you kiss your beloved while standing in the middle of the bridge's arch. Sea Caves The sea caves in this region are a breathtaking natural setting. Here in the Cape Greco National Park there are impressive rock bridges, hidden caves and tunnels. The sea caves are not only beautiful to look at, but extend up to 80 metres underground and are partly completely under water. At low tide, you can explore this wild piece of nature on foot, and when the sea is calm, you can also swim, snorkel or dive in the crystal-clear water. According to legend, the caves were used by pirates to store booty. Of course, the cave-like tunnels, bridges and rock formations served as perfect hiding places. Bridge of Koraka Here you can literally feel the magic of nature! The natural bridge of Koraka is the largest natural bridge in Cyprus. It is one of the most romantic and inspiring places in the area. The Forestry Department has fenced off the area around the bridge as the rocky bridge is in danger of collapsing due to the waves and the deep roots of the shrubs attacking the rocks. Locals and tourists can still visit the area despite the fencing to admire the magic of nature and its beauty. Chapel Agioi Anargiroi This beautiful church, built on the edge of a cliff, is dedicated to Agioi Anargyroi. The church dates from the 1950s. Legend has it that just below this site is a cave where the saints Anargyros (Kostas and Damianos) practised. In this cave was an image or icon of Agioi Anargyron, which after some time was thought to be lost. Until one day a fisherman came by and stopped to see what it was all about.

Amazing dive, the instructors were determined to make the dive as enjoyable and safe as possible for us. They are a group of very knowledgeable divers with a good sense of humour. They assured we felt safe with diving before taking us deeper to see some statues and a lot of colourful fish. They also took pictures so we could remember this amazing experience. A big thanks to the diving shop!
