will find marine life galore and an unbelievable variety of
marine species of all kind and sizes. Furthermore, Paradise
includes lots of cuts, little holes and canyons, worth for
a closer look.

for novices due to the shallow reef top, underwater mountain,
sloping down to greater depths, rocks scattered around everywhere,
a torch will be very useful for a closer inspection of holes
and crevices, lots of groupers and Sea breams of all size
can be found under every rock, it`s impressive to see all
the schooling Monk fish close to the reef top and the surface,
good for wide angel photography.

scenery of this site is not really breathtaking, just a long
ridge of rocks close to the harbour entrance of Girne.
But the point is that it definitely matches the same
fish. They have been used to the encounters with divers for
a long time, being fed by them since. An excellent spot for
the filmmakers, and photographers or for divers, who likes
this kind of intensive fish-watching only.

Citti Di Alesandria is completely broken up, but the hull
can still be dived in some bigger parts. The engine lays away
from the hull within an acceptable swimming distance, while
the propeller and the anchor can be found just in one line.
Groupers, Amber jacks, Snappers, Octopus and smaller monk
fish gather around.
