Playa Porto Marie
We begin our underwater journey at Playa Porto Marie, a true paradise on earth. Before you dive into the water, we suggest you enjoy the beautiful pearly white beach and the wonderful vacation vibe here. In fact, as soon as you take one step on the beach of Playa Porto Marie, you seem to step right into a postcard. That’s how beautiful it is there. It is also an ideal place to start your snorkeling vacation. Especially if you haven’t snorkeled much before. After all, you don’t have to swim far to spot the first beautiful fish. The clear blue sea water is full of life. You can see the most beautiful and colorful fish all around you. A place to feast your eyes!
Have you ever gone for a swim together with a sea turtle? Then you know what a magical feeling that gives! For a moment, it seems like only the two of you exist in the picture-perfect underwater world. You can spot these beautiful sea creatures in Playa Grandi. And we highly recommend visiting this place during your snorkeling vacation. The beach itself may not be as beautiful as Playa Porto Marie’s, but the turtles make up for everything. Playa Grandi is a real fishing beach. Local fishermen come ashore here and get right to work with their freshly caught catch. Some parts of the fish are not useful to the fishermen and they throw these parts back into the sea. Turtles gratefully take advantage of these free meals. And that means you get the chance to spot them in their own underwater world. And that is the most beautiful feeling there is!
Your snorkeling vacation is not complete without a visit to the island’s most popular dive spot: Tugboat. More than 30 years ago, a tugboat sank just off the coast. The wreck of this tugboat, or Tugboat, still lies at the bottom of the sea. But this bottom is not as deep as you might think. The wreck is only five meters deep, making it the perfect location for exploration. The wreck now looks beautiful and is full of marine life. So a wonderful place to discover marine life in a special way. Being a popular diving and snorkeling spot, the place is always giant. Here you meet people from all over the world and make friends for life. So even if you’re looking for conviviality, you’ve come to the right place at Tugboat.
