Snorkeling is a water activity that involves swimming through water while equipped with diving gear. You get to see marine life in their natural habitat and explore underwater landscapes as you swim. There are great snorkeling destinations in Europe and this post will shed some light on some of them. See below our list for top snorkeling destinations in Europe:
The Great Barrier Reef, Australia
The Land down under is home to this Unesco’s World Heritage Site. The reef spreads over thousands of kilometers and houses various species of fish that range from sharks to crocodiles and every other imaginable specie of aquatic animal you are hoping to see. It’s a beauty to behold.
Illes Medes, Spain
This collection of islands in Costa Brava is a great destination for snorkeling in Europe. The islands are very rocky and therefore not a good place for fishing or a lot of water activity. This means snorkelers get to enjoy the activity with little or no distractions. See various types of fish like starfish, barracudas, and different sea plants.
Makarska beach may not be as popular as other popular snorkeling destinations in Europe but it is just as great. See amazing aquatic life in clear waters like shell fish, crabs, octopuses and even sea horses. There are also colorful water plants like sponges and even corals.
Isola Rossa, Italy
Located in Sardinia, Italy, the beaches in Isola Rossa are quite sandy with clear blue waters. See various pools that can be sometimes shallow or deep depending on the area you choose to explore. This doesn’t mean there aren’t tons of fish to see when you snorkel in the beautiful beaches. It’s a great spot to also vacation with family
