Like to visit another planet? Just float down through the mirror that separates the earthly world from the underwater world.

Here you will find plunging underwater reefs, covered with marine life, and strangely shaped, brightly coloured plants. Here is a world of anemones, sea urchins, star fish, sea cucumbers and a multitude of invertebrates layering the limestone bedrock.

There are many diving sites but to access them, we advise you to first get in touch with a certified diving company (see Maritime Transport Services under "Taxis"). There you will find services geared towards diving, snorkelling and all kinds of activities. It's surely the best way to visit the mermaids of the archipelago.
