Kalypso Bay

Kalypso Beach is a unique bay with clear crystal water. Perfect for snorkeling, catching sun or DIVING. Our asset is the very diversified landscapes on such a small area, normally excellent visibility (though it’s seams to be changing the latest years). Tip: search internet images with “Crete Kalyspo Divers“

We can see a lot of different marine life: rabbit fish; breams; fire worms; lionfish; octopus; squid; sponges; sea slugs; with a lot of luck TURTLES.
