Why is Greece such a popular destination?
Greece is a worthy of note and appreciation as a diving destination in Europe / the Mediterranean. This is a great option for travel, especially divers (and all non-skiers) thanks to the huge diversity associated with the terrain and attractions. You can find mountains, valleys, large agglomerations, peaceful villages, quiet bays and loud public beaches — anything you want!
Greece is divided into 13 regions, but the most important region for us is its very long, rich and diverse coastline and islands of which there are over 2,500 — and they constitute 1/5 of the total area of the country. Even though nearly 80% of Greece is covered by mountains (the highest peak is Olympos, 2917 meters above sea level), Greece is a maritime country. The coastline spans 15,000 kilometers, including the coasts of all its islands — which constitute 10.9 thousand kilometers for the total. Is that enough coast for you?
Diving here is brilliant. There are many places that are good for technical divers. Plenty of wrecks and grottos… great spots for recreational divers (most of the divers in Greece are recreational), as well as simple, entry-level spots for those who are only starting on their adventure with diving. Greece will completely satisfy any diver's tastes. Rocks and underwater mountain chains conceal many recesses and natural shelters for marine animals. Fish species common to the Mediterranean swim in the depths around Greece. This is also a country where you can also find turtles, dolphins, wings, barracuda, sea horses, nudibranches, rays, and large groupers.
