Greece has evolved into the top travel destination on the whole European continent for various reasons. No surprise snorkelling is so popular in the nation because of the calm, clean seas that are deep blue and incredibly translucent. Greece is a must-see when visiting this country for vacation. 

If participating in water sports is a top priority for you, our Greece snorkelling guide will inform you where to go to have the most unforgettable experience of all time!

Ocean-snorkelling

Santorini

One of the most charming locations in Greece and one of the greatest snorkelling spots is the cosmopolitan island of Santorini. The sea floor off of Santorini is intriguing because of the volcano.

Also, because of the region’s high salt content, snorkelling and cruising, are both very calming activities. Cape Tripiti, Taxiarchis, with its renowned shipwreck, and the reef near Adiavati are three of the best snorkelling spots on the island.

Zante (Zakynthos)

The island of Zakynthos, often known as Zante, is another of Greece’s most well-liked vacation spots. Some of the best snorkelling places in the world may be found on this Ionian island. Particularly in the island’s southwest, features one of the most stunning seabeds and intriguing aquatic life.

Its nationally acclaimed National Marine Park is particularly noteworthy. Dreamy dives are well complemented by the area’s diverse flora and wildlife, blue seas, and caverns, especially at the Blue Cave spot.

If you’re lucky, you could swim alongside a Caretta-Caretta turtle or a Monachus seal, both of which are well-known for frequenting the beaches of Zante.

Kefalonia

Kefalonia has a lot of undersea mysteries. The ocean floor is a gigantic museum where tragedies from Homer’s epics, ships from the Venetian and pirate eras, and the remains of two world wars may all be found. The most magnificent two of them are barely two kilometres from Argostoli, Kefalonia’s capital.

One of the best places to go snorkelling in Kefalonia is Foki Beach. Go snorkelling in the quiet, clear water of this secluded bay before relaxing on the beach, where a patchwork of olive orchards that stretches from the mountains to the sand offers much-needed protection.

Crete

Of course, the biggest island in Greece has to be included. Several shipwrecks and plane wreckage may be seen in picturesque Crete, bearing witness to the island’s past. Skinaria Beach, which lies right outside of Lefkogia town, offers some of the greatest snorkelling in Greece right now. The beach is also known as Shinaria. Whichever name you give the beach, it offers a little stretch of fine sand and stones lapped by the clear Mediterranean waves. 

Corfu 

Snorkelling is a great way to explore the wonderful underwater riches of Corfu, a stunning island rich in history and natural beauty. For water activities, the island is at the top. For all lovers of the sea, the beaches, coves, capes, and boundless drylands are bliss on Earth.

Avlaki Beach is without a doubt the greatest snorkelling location in Corfu, although Rodovani Beach, Bataria Beach, and Agios Georgios Beach are other strong rivals. Rodovani Beach can only be reached by boat, which detracts from its appeal (renowned for its excellent paddle boarding, windsurfing, and catamaran sailing besides snorkelling).

Kalymnos

A less well-known Greek island in the Dodecanese group is Kalymnos. It is best known as “the island of sponges” because it has historically provided Greece with natural sponges for capturing, processing, supplying, and exporting. It is to be expected that Kalymnos has a seafloor rich in reefs, caverns, and shipwrecks.

As a result, it produces the ideal environment for snorkelers and those who like discovering the mysterious depths of the Greek waters. The sites that draw the most divers and snorkelers include Therma-Pithari, the well-known diving park, Kastelli and Kambi’s sponge farms. As a consequence, when visiting the serene island, these are the places you should be.
