Video taken snorkeling in Crete with my wonderful underwater camera April 2010
Although there’s plenty of beautiful sites and beaches on Crete and other Greek Islands, have you ever tried snorkeling in Crete. There’s a whole brand new world, like finding a forth dimension of beautiful landscapes, colour and creatures to explore under the water. Feel like your hovering over an alien landscape, get that feeling of vertigo when you swim (fly) over a steep drop looking into the abyss wondering which strange creatures are looking up at you.
Falasarna Wreck On an excursion to Falasarna, we went to the ancient site there, parked in the car park, had a look around, got very hot and decided we needed to jump in the sea to cool down. We got the beach stuff from the car and walked through the brush towards the sea finding a small deserted pebble beach (see photo).

Snorkeling At DrapanosFirst visit here was on the boat trip from Almyrida harbour to see the sea caves and do some snorkeling, excellent trip.We returned by car later to the same spot. The drive down to the small inlet is not for the faint hearted but was worth it, there’s a taverna at the bottom with a car park and to be polite we had something to eat there. We only intended to have a sandwich but the owner didn’t speak English so the wife had to go into the kitchen and point at a few things. We ended up with quite a feast (which was lovely ) and had to wait a while before swimming. No beach just a small concrete plinth, excellent snorkeling and scenery.
