Come with us and enjoy a refreshing cruise to an islet of myth and legend!

The principal port of Crete for centuries looks like a giant lizard when viewed from above.

Legend has it that a giant lizard tried to destroy the island of Crete, but Zeus turned it in to stone with a thunderbolt, thus creating the islet

The islet today is uninhabited, but hosts plenty of protected species of plants and animals .It is part of the European Network of Nature (Natura) 2000 and is a protected hunting ground.

The island was formerly known as Standia, by juncture loss in the phrase στήν Δία, which means to Dia and it was the principal port of Crete for centuries.

Another worth mentioning fact is that during 1976, Jacques Cousteau carried out underwater exploration around Dia and found the remains of an ancient port in the waters between Heraklion and Dia.
