Explore diving around the UNAHOTELS Naxos Beach Sicily

What to see

The diving off Sicily may not yield many sightings of large pelagic marine species unless you head further south to Lampedusa where you could spot some oceanic shark species, sea turtles, dolphins and a rare manta ray. Overfishing is a prevalent problem in the Mediterranean but divers can still have an enjoyable time especially with the interesting seascapes and shipwrecks.

At most dive sites, moray and conger eels are often seen poking out of crevices together with lobster and shrimp. Amongst beds and walls of gorgonian sea fans and sponges, find groupers, sea bream, clouds of anthias and also octopus. Closer to the reefs, look for critters like colorful nudibranch, flying gunards and crabs.

The hotel is nestled in a wide inlet where the beauty of nature is concentrated. Look forward to long, pebbly beaches, clear seas, archaeological sites and a mild climate. Take a stroll through the well-manicured gardens and admire the brightly colored flowers and olive, lemon and orange trees.

Each building of the resort is surrounded by luxurious vegetation, offering a total capacity of 642 rooms. There are four restaurants serving generous portions of Italian and international cuisine, as well as delectable pastries and desserts- not to be missed! In the evenings live piano music can be enjoyed in the Olympus Café.

For entertainment, why not catch a show? These are staged regularly in the center square. The resort boasts four pools, two of which are for children and one is olympic sized. Kids will be engrossed by the busy schedule of activities at the miniclub.
