Marine Marvels With an Artificial Reef

If you love to explore below the water then you will be in seventh heaven at this aquatic attraction. Experienced divers may dive to an artificial reef formed at the park by the deliberate sinking of the Stavronikita. This ship lies at a depth of around 120ft, less than half a mile away from the shore.

Snorkelers are better off staying close to the shore, exploring the beautiful inner reef in the recreational area of the park. This reef teems with colorful marine life and is a wonderful place to learn more about the behaviors of a variety of sea creatures.
