Seas of the Greece:
Sea of Crete
The Greek coast has a length of approximately 16,000 km. Half of this length extends along the mainland, while the other half is found around the thousands of Greek islands. Characterized by a unique diversity, the Greek coast have sandy beaches stretching over many kilometers, pebbly shores, small bays and coves, coastal caves with the characteristic dark sand of volcanic soils, and clean and transparent waters that made them popular all over the world. The majority of the islands are freely accessible and you can enjoy them without the presence of a large number of swimmers. Many organized beaches in the country have the necessary infrastructure providing high-quality services (changing booths, bar-restaurants, cafes, umbrellas, reclining chairs etc), where you can enjoy water sports, like windsurfing, diving, water skiing etc.
The Greek islands are integral part of the country's civilization and tradition. They are scattered in the Aegean and Ionian Sea taking up 7,500 km of the country's total coastline. The Greek Archipelago comprises approximately 6,000 islands and islets of which only 227 are inhabited. Apart from being the cradle of some of the most ancient European civilizations, the islands boast unique archeological sites and outstanding architectural heritage. The beautiful Greek beaches have been awarded the Blue Flag under the program Blue Flags of Europe. Except swimming, the crystal clear water of Greece is perfect for snorkeling, diving, water skiing and windsurfing.
