Smuggler’s Cove

Smuggler’s Bay is famous since Ottoman Times and used by drug smugglers from Greek islands. The bay makes a deep cut on the island’s profile and it is very hard to see the bay from distance. There is also a very long and winding underwater cave system with an entrance right below the sea level.

You will see many amphoras plus stingrays, schooling groupers, soldierfish, axe fish, and moray eels in the numerous cracks in the rocks.
