It is true that the Mediterranean Sea, unlike many other seas in the world, has no coral reefs. However, it still contains rich and varied underwater life that is well worth seeing.

In fact, 40% of marine species in the Mediterranean are native to the region and can be found nowhere else in the world. The Posidonia (or Neptune Grass) sea beds, in particular, form a unique ecosystem that contains nearly 25% of the species in the Mediterranean Sea.

Waters here are often warm and crystal-clear. With a calm sea, a warm sun, many species of colorful fish, and unique underwater environments, the Mediterranean Sea has everything you need for great snorkeling explorations!
