There are many things that draw tourists from around the world to Greece, but one of the main attractions is the gorgeous sea. Sailing in Greece is a wonderful way to experience the ocean, but it there are many other oceanic activities that can help to enhance your enjoyment. If you want to make the most of the beautiful Mediterranean waters during your visit, there are a few other activities you simply must try out.

There are many watersports you can enjoy in Greece, particularly on the little island of Poros. Waterskiing, paragliding and wakeboarding are all available for adventurous types who want a thrilling, extraordinary and unforgettable way to experience the Aegean Sea.

The landscapes we think of as making up the Earth are actually much less than half of the planet’s surface. Under the sea, you will find completely different landscapes that are strange, serene and beautiful. Snorkelling is an easy way to admire Greece’s spectacular underwater vistas with minimal equipment and fantastic levels of safety. In particular, you should definitely consider snorkelling off the coast of the little village of Ermioni, where you will have the chance to admire the stunning underwater archaeological site of Bisti.
Paddleboarding is a simple, relaxing and fun way to enjoy travelling along the surface of the sea. Travel calmly over the water, close to the glistening waves, at your own pace under your own steam. Paddleboarding may well be one of the ocean’s simplest pleasures, but sometimes the simple ones are the best.
