Work with the water
15,000km of coast and thousands of islands make for water sports nirvana. Shallow waters and excellent winds make the Argolic Gulf ideal for windsurfing and kite surfing, or take things slower with kayaking or maybe some sea-biking! Brush up sailing skills on island voyages, feeling the wind and trimming the sails as you head for another perfect cove or characterful port.
Crystal clear water with 40m visibility makes Greece a diving joy. Fin past reefs and wrecks, sharing the briny with curious dolphins, colourful scorpion and parrot fish, sleek moray eels and barracuda plus, perhaps, loggerhead turtles and monk seals. Dazzle yourself with a night dive through phosphorescent plankton in a magical Ios bay. And don't forget the water snaking inland – you'll love rafting on the Lousios, one of the most beautiful rivers of Greece.
