ACTIVITIES / Diving / Nemesis III
The dumping of the fishing vessel "Nemesis III" along with the placement of artificial reefs, was part of the establishment of a marine protected area in Protaras ,Paralimni.

Artificial reefs are deliberately positioned in construction seabed, aimed at imitating the properties provided by a natural reef: shelter, nutrition, reproduction, growth and increase in size and number of the population of marine biota.

It is a truly beautiful spot to dive and discover the secrets that lie underneath the surface.
