Agios Pavlos is an exciting dive site located close to the secluded beach of Crete, which has calm waters. It leads to a large wall going all the way down for 50m/164ft covered with rare sponges and bright corals. It would take two dives to explore the whole wall, while the current might cause divers to need to adjust their direction. The bottom is full of enormous rocks and small caves with stalagmites and stalactites and sand on the cave floor.
