Alternatively, guests can head out onto the water with the Candia Ski Club and watersports hire to experience thrilling adventures in the captivating azure of the Aegean Sea. Water-skiing and windsurfing are sure to get pulses racing, or head out with a dive master from the newly-opened Mediterranean View Diving Centre to survey the seabed and uncover the many fish and plant life that grace the waters.
