If you love the sea then during your stay on the island you will have the chance to try the experience of diving in the wonderful undersea world of Crete. Even if you are a beginner there are many diving centers throughout the prefecture of Heraklion that will initiate you into the secrets of safe diving and will accompany you in incredible beauty landscapes at the seabed, providing you with the right equipment. The numerous shipwrecks and crashed airplanes that indicate the history of the island, the scattered flooded cities such as the Roman settlement of Lefkas and the Sanctuary of Viena in Lake Krios are some of the unique places the visitor can explore either using only a mask or using the proper diving equipment.
