If caught mding in Cyprus you will get banged up.The Greeks are obsessive about protecting there heritage.I dont know if it has changed with the EEC but you cant take scuba bottles over there for fear of you raiding the wrecks(of which there are many)
They still havent forgiven us for the Elgin marbles :)

Looks like Ayia Nappa gets detected
The punters may be British and they may be here for sun, sex and dance music, but Ayia Napa is a long way from the drug-fuelled, hands-in-the-air hedonism of Ibiza. Instead, this is style-conscious urban London decamped to the eastern Mediterranean. It's a predominantly black crowd, and so represents perhaps the broadest racial mix you'll find on any beach in Europe. And, every evening, regular as clockwork, a lone metal detector can be seen picking his way among the empty sun loungers after the beach has cleared. Jewellery is an essential part of Nissi Bay beachwear and there are rich pickings to be had.
