Kelyfos, widely known as “Turtle” due to its shape that resembles a turtle, is a scuba diving gem. Scuba diving enthusiasts will be able to immerse themselves into the rich seabed replete with anemones, starfish, and corals of every kind of shape and color. Extra tip for the most maverick scuba divers: Here, the depth reaches 45 meters. Additionally, on the islet, every sundown comes with its own unrepeatable sky show. Be sure that you are there to witness it.

The wreck of the ship “Mytilene”

“Mytilene” used to be a German motorship that was carrying oil, wine, and cereals, from Thessaloniki to the island of Mytilene. In 1961, inclement weather, a rough storm and a hit in a reef culminated in a shipwreck. A particularity of this shipwreck is the fact that the ship still has bottles of wine that are intact. If you are a naturalist, you will fall in love with the groupers, seabreams, moray eels, etc. that stroll around the wreck. Seascape too poor for words.
