With just a little research beforehand, then the help of some friendly locals on-location, you can be sure that
you will have a great time on your vacation. It is worth choosing places where you will have to move a lot
(on walks, etc.) Otherwise, the Greek cuisine, fine wines and delicacies may cause you to come home with a few extra
pounds than you left with — if you catch our drift…
In Attiki, near
Anavyssos, you can find the Nordic wreck of the
MV Kyra Eleni.
This was a transport vessel that sank on January 5, 1978, after breaking in half.
The stern rests at a depth of 17 meters, and the bow at 30 meters. In the 80s, divers excavated some of the ship's
equipment. Now the wreck is an apartment for many sea creatures. Diving is pleasant and quite easy. There are no
sea currents in the area, and visibility ranges from 20 to 40 meters.
The lesser known islands are also worth recommending. For example, near the island of
Kea lies the wreck of the
HMHS Britannic - a British steam passenger ship, which sank in 1916 and was discovered by
Jacques Cousteau in 1975.
