Watersports, Santorini Island
At Caldera Beach you will find the Diving centre. It is a small remote beach with traditional caves below the cliffs of Akrotiri.
Ask to be transfered from your hotels here.
Santorini Dive Center has an office also in Perissa village, at the southeast part of the island and is located in Perissa Camping in front of the famous Black Sand Beach, between the Beach Bar and Yazz bar.
I used the Santorini dive center which has a number
of outlets around the Island. I found them to be
very helpful and friendly.
We did two dives, one at the base of the volcano,
where you can see the under water lava flow and the
wreck of the "Santa Maria".
The second dive was from the shoore near Akrotiri,
here we swam out to the reef, with a deep drop off
and numeous fish. A great day out
