Marina & Fishing Harbors
With the charming backdrop of bobbing boats, the island’s quaint fishing shelters and small harbours are an important part of its connection to the sea, and the source of the delicious fresh fish that is served up at taverns all across Cyprus. At many of the shelters and harbours, visitors can take a leisurely stroll with a seaview, or engage with the local fisherman as they work – many in the traditional way. At some locations, the freshest catch is served up at seafood restaurants that line the immediate area and offer pretty views of the bustling fishing hub, whilst others are tiny with only the boat owners frequenting the site. The Department of Fisheries and Marine Research (DFMR) is responsible for the maintenance and upgrading of existing fishing shelters on the island, along with the construction of new ones, with the aim of providing safe harbouring for professional fishing vessels. Recreational fishing boats can also use the berths when they are free.
