Enjoying the ride in a Tullio Abbate Elite 25″/7,5m Speedboat visiting the secluded bays, caves and the historic information about the area provided from our skipper. After
about an hour we will reach the small port of Gramvousa with the famous castle built in 1579 by the Venetians, at the highest point of the island, on top of a steep, 137-metre-high rock. Its majestic beauty combined with the panoramic view of Balos lagoon and the legend of hidden pirate treasure, linked to it are good reasons to take the 20-minute walk that will get you there.
Our first dive takes place in Balos Lagoon before the big Ferries arrive full of people.
