About Scuba diving in Thessaloniki
Thessaloniki is a beautiful European city, known for its rich Greek culture and historical sites. That often eclipses the fact that Thessaloniki is also home to some beautiful Mediterranean beaches along its shoreline. Many of these beaches are known for watersports. Diving in Thessaloniki is quite a popular watersport, along with snorkelling and waterskiing. Wave or windsurfing is not the option because of the lack of waves and low wind speed during most of the summer, typical to Mediterranean weather.
But the same calm and clear climate offer the best opportunities for scuba diving in Thessaloniki. Since the city centre is not by the sea itself, one has to drive up for a few kilometres to find a spot for scuba diving.
Asprovalta Beach in Agios Georgios, an hour’s drive from Thessaloniki, is a beautiful and sunny beach with a lively and spirited youthful vibe. There are good choices on water sports, including scuba diving into the crystal blue waters.
The nearest beach for diving in Thessaloniki is Stavros, facing Strymonicos Bay – an offshoot water body of the Mediterranean. It lies close to the city centre, within a driving distance of 30 minutes. The beach itself is a lovely place with a promenade to walk on and numerous places for dining and drinking. Richios Beach is yet another one, close to Stavros.
All these beaches are impeccably maintained and blue-flagged by the EU. Thessaloniki scuba diving scene in these beaches is beautifully serene and tranquil. Even if you are a veteran of the sport, you will find the calm of the Thessaloniki beaches to be something unexplored before. The clear blue seas allow you everything to see and touch and feel. As an added bonus for those who do not know how to swim or are scared of water, the depth of the sea in the Thessaloniki beaches are very less.
PADI-certified Sea World Scuba Diving Center is one of the most popular and premium names among the scuba diving schools in Thessaloniki. They offer state-of-the-art equipment and complete safety guidance for a safe dive, even for a first-timer.
