The 9 best places for diving and snorkeling in Crete, Greece

Vinsky forum

Does it make sense to bring a mask / snorkel / flippers on vacation in Bali in mid September? Swimming is supposed to be from the shore only (going with a little kid).

Ideally, I would like advice from those who have swum there themselves. Anything interesting to see? If so, which beach is better?

Used to snorkel in the Maldives, I understand that you can’t count on anything even close to similar, but still.

I was there last September – small fish, crabs imho, after the Maldives you will be a bit bored there nevertheless snorkelers were seen there regularly

mvs_rk6 , thanks again!

Is there anything archaeological underwater there?

We swam on 3 and 4 beach and the Maldives too. There is no point in comparing of course. The most interesting thing is the turtle in the port, which swims there every morning when the fishermen sort out their catch and tossed overboard scraps. It’s great to watch with a mask. We also caught a snorkeling octopus and a starfish. This is the most interesting:) And so fishes swim in flocks well and corals grow. So in principle you can take a mask / tube / flippers. We will do it :)

Lapine , good day! Bali is not bad diving. Its advantages: the bays are closed to the wind, the water is clear. We like diving the most in the fourth and last cove near Evita Hotel. I like the difference in depths, if you swim away from the shore. Of wildlife: fish, crabs, as above written. I also saw starfish and holothuria. My dad saw a turtle. If you still think about diving – not far away, in the village of Panormo, there is a diving center Atlantis with Russian-speaking instructors. Underwater archaeology – the closest thing to Bali is probably the sunken ancient city of Olus, to the east, near Elounda. And in the west, near Chania, underwater you can admire the sunken during World War II aircraft, the underwater Elephant Cave. but all this is not with a small child, of course.

VeraGus , merci , thank you so much for the tips! We will take it!

We won’t think about diving – alas, we only know how to dive on the surface.

Elephant Cave is for diving. Omega, for example, takes divers there: http://www.omegadivers.com/

A sunken German plane. Both snorkeling and diving. There are boat rides to the place where it lies. Take from Chania (from the old harbor), from Agia Marina, from Maleme. You can dive with snorkels and flippers from the ship. And some dive centers offer more and scuba to swim to the plane. I’m not sure, but these you can ask:

Olus – both snorkeling and diving.

Good afternoon! We were in Bali since September 20, but it was 5 years ago. We mostly went to the biggest beach of the four. We lived in the hotel “Lisa Mari”, so we went down the stairs to the beach. The beach itself is sandy with a smooth entrance to the water, but just next to the stairs there are rocks – and that’s where the main contingent of marine life lives. From what I saw in person, snorkeling: orange octopus, covered on all sides with various shells, one and a half meter blue moray (did not have time to photograph – swam away into the open sea), small red-green fish like Egyptian, flocks of large silvery fish “commercial species”, live sea urchins, interesting shells (or skeleton) of sea urchins, various shells, hermit crabs, hiding in these shells from prying eyes, all kinds of algae, and once glimpse of a squid or a cuttlefish (I could not make out, he quickly disappeared from view). Of course, not the Egyptian coral reef, but I was still very interesting. By the way, of the three trips to Crete, I liked the vacation in Bali the most. I would be glad if this information is useful to you. Regards, Andrew.

Thank you very much for the information Andrew, very much appreciated!

Are you referring to the headland separating Livadi Beach (that’s the biggest one) and Varkotopo Beach (the one next to it)?

No such vivid impressions as from snorkeling in the Red Sea or the Indian Ocean in Crete at all, but relative to other places in Crete in Bali was at least something. The snorkel to the left of the beach of the Bali Star Hotel . And the best Cretan snorkeling I had was on the southern beach of Itanos in the east of the island – bright sea stars, crabs of all kinds, fish, hedgehogs. And it was beautiful in general.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6k_B1fGmrA Read the thread, couldn’t find anyone posting underwater videos from Bali. I’m posting mine. July 2016. Just got back from there last week. Evita bay beach. The water there was the clearest because of the pebbles. The other beaches have sand and the water is murkier. The fish are really peeling )) biting my heels.

Damn , here’s a thank you for the video.

Really, after watching it, I began to doubt whether it is worth it to bring the equipment. For, of course, null and void in comparison.

And another question. Evita bay is the farthest bay that the guidebooks call Karavostasi?

Yes, nada. But without fish with a snorkel is also good to swim, shimmering bottom to watch, on this beach a lot of people with masks were. Take your bread, crumble it (I do not know if it is good to do so, but we did) and the fish around you at once will be a lot. True all are the same and will bite, but plenty.

Damn , can I try you some more as a person recently from Bali ? ;)

I am interested in the ships. It seems there are flights from Bali to Rethymno, Panormo and some other cruises for snorkeling and caves. Do you have any information about that? Schedule, prices, etc. Would be much appreciated!

We vacationed with young children – 10 months and 4 years old. Practically never left the hotel, one gets a fever, the other one, cough, snot, nervousness, one day only spent on this beach. We never went anywhere else.
