Kakava is an extended ancient wreck site, once believed to be a legendary sunken village. Such is the abundance of amphorae, probably from few Roman era wrecks with at least one from 2nd century BC. Around the reef more evidence of ancient to modern day small wrecks are present, while clouds of damselfish hovering against the current attract predators as snappers, mediterranean barracudas and amberjacks. Schools of parrotfish, brown meagres, groupers and octopuses occupy every hole and crevice of the reef. The dive site is situated between the two main nesting beaches for Loggerhead turtles, Kaminia and Skala, so chances to catch one looking for her next meal, are great. – DIVE UPLOADED by BLUE MANTA DIVING & AQUANAUTIC CLUB
