Loutraki is one of the highest recommended regions in the Peloponnese peninsula for diving, offering splendid variety. The Andros Wreck is one of the most famous wrecks in the country because of its easy access and shallow depth, allowing plenty of light to filter down. Bring your camera, you are definitely going to want to grab a shot of this beauty.
Check out the impressive rock formations and canyons at the Blue Canyon site. For reef diving, go to Atlas Reef, which you can reach from the shore.
Pilos is another great spot, found down on the southwestern corner of the peninsula. The relaxed atmosphere is catching, and you’re bound to want to stay a day or two longer than originally planned.
The Peloponnese is a region for all seasons. The peninsula in southern Greece is welcomed with hot, dry summers with sea temperatures ranging from 22-26°C, to a cooler 15-18°C in the winter meaning scuba diving in Greece can be enjoyed year round.
A 3/5mm wetsuit is recommended in the summer and 5/7mm wetsuit in the winter months.
