Exploring the Underwater Wonders of Naxos: A Diving Adventure Aboard the Annabella

Naxos, the largest island in the Cyclades, is not just known for its stunning beaches and rich history, but also for its incredible underwater landscapes. For diving enthusiasts, Naxos offers an adventure that is as mesmerising as it is unforgettable. Whether you are a seasoned diver or a beginner looking to explore the marine world, the island’s crystal-clear waters and diverse marine life provide the perfect setting for an extraordinary diving experience.


Our diving adventure began aboard the beautiful yacht, Annabella. The journey was made even more special by the exceptional hospitality of Captain George, or Cpt George as we fondly called him. His warm welcome and expert knowledge of the local waters set the tone for an unforgettable experience. Captain George’s passion for the sea and his dedication to ensuring we had the best possible experience made our journey truly memorable.

The waters around Naxos are teeming with marine life, from vibrant schools of fish to the elusive sea turtles that glide gracefully through the depths. The island’s coastline is dotted with numerous dive sites, each offering unique underwater scenery. One of the most popular sites is the wreck of the “Marianna”, a sunken ship that has become a haven for marine life. Divers can explore the wreckage, which sits at a depth of around 25 metres, and marvel at the colourful coral and sponges that have colonised the ship over the years.


For those who prefer natural formations, the Korfos Cave is a must-visit. This underwater cave system features stunning stalactites and stalagmites, providing a dramatic backdrop for any dive. The play of light and shadow within the cave creates an otherworldly atmosphere, making it a favourite among underwater photographers.

Beginners are also well catered for, with numerous diving schools offering courses and guided dives. These schools provide all the necessary equipment and expert instruction to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. The shallow reefs and gentle currents around Naxos are perfect for novice divers, allowing them to gain confidence while exploring the underwater world.


Diving in Naxos is not just about the underwater experience; it’s also about the sense of adventure and discovery that comes with it. After a day of diving, visitors can relax on the island’s pristine beaches or explore its charming villages and ancient ruins. The combination of underwater and on-land adventures makes Naxos a perfect destination for those looking to experience the best of both worlds.

In conclusion, Naxos offers a diverse and captivating diving experience that is sure to delight divers of all skill levels. With its rich marine life, fascinating dive sites, and excellent diving facilities, the island promises an adventure that will leave you with lasting memories and a deep appreciation for the underwater world.
