Scuba diving in Halkidiki

Scuba diving in Halkidiki

Diving in Halkidiki offers unique diving experiences, with a great abundance of reefs, walls and caverns, making diving here one of the most interesting diving experiences in the region of the Mediterranean.

In order to fully experience Halkidiki, you need to dive and live the rejuvenating power of water. Halkidiki is literally sculpted by nature forces to balance the earth and sea. Three peninsulas - Kassandra, the cosmopolitan; Sithonia, the unspoiled and Athos, the Holy- create a very special diving location.

The underwater landscape varies greatly from area to area, from sandy bottom to steep cliffs and from crystal clear waters to dark underwater caves. Flora and fauna of the sea ground vary depending on the dive site and the season. The existence of many species of fish and underwater plants joyfully colours the sea ground, while the presence of shipwrecks in the area makes diving particularly interesting. Fish such as tuna and others, make their appearance periodically every May and September. The waters in most areas are warm and there are no - at least in the main diving spots - intense currents.

Diving takes place in more than 20 locations all over Halkidiki, while in diving schools one can attend all of the training programs, as well as an integrated diving trip program for graduate divers.
