Diving in Crete definitely ranks among the top things to do when you are on the island. But why is that? Well, you have already been dazzled by the cobalt blue waters and the bright sky with the abundant sunlight. Greece is a blessed country with a coastline that spans for over 13,676 kilometers. This is in fact the largest coastline in the Mediterranean. Scattered like precious jewels, over 1,200 islands complete the most spectacular canvas painted by a skillful artist to attract millions of travelers from all over the world every year. And Crete takes pride in being one of the favorites!
Crete is the largest and southernmost island in Greece and is superbly located right between the Aegean and Libyan Sea. The beaches here have it all; crystalline waters, silky soft sandy beaches, colorful pebbles and even steep rocks. There are secluded strips of heaven with tamarisk trees and long stretches of sand hosting beach bars, sun loungers and parasols. When you think of summer by the beach, it is only fair that your mind travels to Crete and your wanderlust is fuelled by a never-ending stream of poster-like pictures flooding social media. Who can blame those lucky ones who share their dreamy moments online?
