One of the most beautiful beaches of South Pelion that maintains its “wildness” as there is no commercial exploitation is located a few kilometers away from the village “Syki” of Argalasti. The area is suitable for leisurely swimming and an even more relaxing dive, as the place has a beautiful morphology but does not exceed 17 meters in depth. If you are an OW diver or if you want something very shallow and bright, Potoki is definitely the place for you.

Up to 20m depth

By car, By 4x4, By boat

Up to 50m of swimming

Ideal for swimming

It has no shipwreck

Leave the car in the parking lot and walk to the left side of the beach. The small pebbles as well as the stream can make carrying your equipment for the required 80 meters a little difficult.

THE COAST

This is a very beautiful beach that has no facilities such as showers or a shop, so if you plan to spend more time there you should equip yourself with everything you need. The place is also ideal for snorkeling.

ENTRY TO THE SEA

After preparing your equipment, enter the water and perform all the necessary pre-dive checks. Take note of the degrees of your entry/exit point, if you have a compass as you may need them, and start swimming to the left for about 30 meters until you pass the next small creek and reach the next rocks.

THE DIVE

Start the dive having the land on your left shoulder. As there is no wall or other landmark you can simply navigate through the impressive cliffs that rise almost to the surface. Unfortunately there is a lot of fishing activity in the area so there is not much marine life to be seen. Due to the shallowness of the area and the fact that it is located in the Aegean, it is usually a bright dive with good visibility, ideal for photography.

You probably will not get at 100 bar quickly, which is usually the returning air supply, so make a plan with your buddy if you want to go back based on time or air. If you are confused by the morphology, consult your compass for the exit direction, making the safety stop at 5 meters before ascending.

SAFETY FIRST!

Σε κάθε κατάδυση ακολουθήστε το πλάνο που έχετε συζητήσει από πριν με τον buddy σας. Μην υπερβαίνετε τα προσωπικά σας όρια και τα όρια της εκπαίδευσής σας, ενώ αν είστε κουρασμένοι ή έχετε ξενυχτήσει την προηγούμενη, θα ήταν ίσως προτιμότερο να καταδυθείτε κάποια άλλη φορά.Καλές αναδύσεις!
