Scuba diving

Every year for many years, professional or amateur divers from all over the world reach the south coasts around Plakias, to admire the most interesting embossed seabed in the Mediterranean, as well as the rich marine life that thrives in the crystal-clear (the visibility reaches 40 meters!) Libyan Sea. Cuttlefish, octopus, moray eels, salamanders and many other species come out of their caves and holes to keep you company, while awesome corals, featuring all sorts of colours, cover huge rocks of unusual shapes. Divers’ paradise!

The less skilled can take beginners’ lessons at one of the many scuba diving schools in Plakias and get the dive under professional supervision.
