Ancient Harbour Wall

It is remarkable once known, to pass by this unique line of rocks, striking out from the coastline towards the modern port of Paphos, and  imagine their original purpose.  The remains of the ancient, original harbour wall are clearly visible today as you stroll along the harbour promenade in Kato Paphos.  This extraordinary site will enrich any divers diving in Paphos experience.  It is wonderful to dive, especially at night.  Even at its fairly shallow depth (6-8 metres), it presents a unique opportunity for the diver to experience a true archeological wonder underwater.  Night dives are particularly rich in sea life here.  Excellent night photography opportunities, especially with the backdrop of the Byzantine Fort in the background.  Plan of Paphos Harbour according to the results of geoarchaeological investigations of 1966:
