The list of activities to take part in, is never ending however, personally I believe some activities beat others. There is something for everyone, the numerous activities will suit every taste. Beach lovers will feel in heaven, food lovers will take their taste-buds on an exciting journey and the history geeks can continue widening their knowledge. Are you ready to pick your next vacation destination?
If you are seeking sunshine, the best time to visit is between late April and the beginning of September. During peak seasons, July to August, the temperatures soar up to over 30s, especially if your are visiting the south of the Mediterranean. The Eastern Mediterranean, which stretches from the Adriatic through the Ionian Sea to the Aegean, represent the greatest concentration of historical interest in cruising the world.
An interesting fact about the Mediterranean sea is that it covers an area of 2.5 million squares and has an average depth of 1,500 meters. The five largest islands in the Mediterranean are Sicily, Sardinia, Cyprus, Corsica and Crete. Whereas the only island nations in the Mediterranean are Malta and Cyprus.
As the weather in the Mediterranean can vary by location, and depending on the season, it is always a good idea to consider packing layering items. It can be incredibly hot in the Mediterranean, especially during the day. While the evenings can be a tad chilly.
And here are a few of those that I would recommend to all those travelling to this area.
One of the things the Mediterranean is wide known for, is the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. The sea there is crystal clear, and not too cold which makes it perfect for swimming, it is also the home to a never-ending number of beautiful creatures. If you are planning on visiting a country that is close to the sea, you should most definitely take advantage of this and go snorkeling, or scuba diving. It gives you the rare opportunity to see life underwater, and see things like the underwater forests that are not talked about enough. Taking an underwater camera with you is an absolute must, to capture the hidden treasures. If done well, and with caution, it is also an activity that will cause very little damage to the environment.
