The hotel is located in the heart of a mystic port, secluded port, surrounded by towering hanging rocks, forming a natural pool which offers cool moments in the crystal waters of the Libyan Sea.
Those who dive discover treasures in the seabed… the rarest bas-relief in the Mediterranean, rich in fish and plants. Those who love exploring can enjoy many of the beaches of Central Mediterranean by boat.
In Southern Crete, in the crystal clear waters of the Libyan Sea, there is a remarkable undersea life.
For many years, professional divers have organized trips in this area of the Mediterranean Sea.
Kalypso Rock's Palace Dive Center operates legally with licenses and insurance required by law, having built facilities on Karavos beach in South Crete. Karavos beach is a natural park surrounded by hanging rocks making it a private secluded bay in the Central Mediterranean, ideal for underwater activities when the weather is fine. The facilities of Kalypso Cretan Village 4* Resort and Spa are adapted to the divers’ needs.
In the nearby area of Kalypso, the coastal tourist resort of Plakias (south of Rethymnon) provides all the necessary tourist services. The undersea activities are very popular with for experienced divers, who are always impressed by the underwater world of South Crete.
Kalypso Rock's Palace Dive Center has developed a friendly discovery programme of the undersea world (step by step), either by snorkeling or scuba diving. For experienced divers we offer various underwater tours and we organise boat trips (fully-equipped rental boat with diving license) to explore the Libyan Sea, the bottom of the sea, the caves, the rich diversity of fauna and flora.
The diving courses are followed by guided undersea trips to the fjords.
Divers receive a certificate of attendance and underwater photos taken from a professional photographer.
On the way to the beach, the Psarantonis open-air theatre (built in ancient Greek architecture style) is the centre of cultural life in Kalypso. In summer, evening shows organized by the animation group, as well as theatrical plays, dance performances and Cretan music nights (often with Psarantonis himself!) take place in this open-air theatre.
At night, the Disco is the local hot spot in Kalypso. Our guests can dance all night to the rhythm of Greek and international hits in an area surrounded by the tall fjords – you can rock to the rocks!
Next to the theatre, there is a ping-pong table, a football table and a Fitness Room. The volleyball court is between the pool and the open-air theatre. It is a perfect chance to train, play with your friends and family or take part in a match organized by our entertainment group.
A tennis court (lit for night play) is also available for those who will enjoy playing next to the blue sea. During the day you can also take part in aqua aerobics or try out the trampoline.
Our entertainment group organizes events like Pirate nights and Olympic Games by the pool on a huge pirate ship. The entertainment continues on the central terrace with activities such as:
