Drone Footage Captures An Untouched Beach In Greece

Either science is finally able to capture a flying dream, or we are looking at the beach of Trimi on the border of Mount Athos, Greece. One can be forgiven for believing you are hallucinating. The water is the bluest, most crystal clear water imaginable. The rocks jut from the water’s edge like statues, while the surrounding hills and trees are artfully landscaped by the gods, themselves. The shape of the cove, a Greek Ω or omega gives visitors a sense of shelter, concealing them from the real world for a time. War, famine, strife, political upheaval? All a distant dream to visitors of the beach , which offers no easy access. Only the intrepid can swim to it from a neighboring beach. Otherwise, it can be reached by a footpath over the hill, and by boat, of course. Spectacular drone footage reveals a stunning coral reef, giving the completely transparent Mediterranean water a mottled hue, from bright aquamarine to London Blue topaz, to shadow. What kinds of sea life might we find below? Those lucky few who arrive by boat could certainly tell us, since they only need fins, a mask, and a snorkel to launch themselves over the hull. Otherwise, they can beach their craft on the sandy shore, or moor to a rocky prominence and have a small slice of the beach all to themselves for a while. They can even hide themselves from other beach goers if they secure a cozy little spot between the magnificent columns. Astronomers long ago named a large swatch of darkness on the moon the “Sea of Tranquility”, but looking at the lazy, carefree beach people from this vantage point, the name might just as well apply to the waters of the north Aegean Sea. So many islands to choose from. The water seems to coordinate with the blue sky . Way off to the south east is Limnos. To the northeast is Thassos. The role of Greece in the development of western civilization is seminal, and yet you can hardly tell anything arising from the human mind or hand ever happened here. It’s almost as if we are looking at a forgotten land. What secrets will be disclosed in soft tones, the beach will never tell. The beach of Trimi was made for the vacation club posters lining cubicle walls all over America. It’s hard to conceptualize a more classical getaway scene than what we see here. How lucky one must be to pilot a drone here. You not only have the perfect equipment for this exciting enterprise, but the weather is on your side, as well. There will be many a wistful sigh when it comes time to depart our magical beach. “C’mon guys, you know we have to go sometime. We have pictures, and we’re out of Ouzo.” The boat kicks backward, away from the sandy shoreline. There’s nothing but blue below and above. You think you can catch a glimpse of Apollo, the sun god Apollo Helios, and the sea god Poseidon, so you wave goodbye to them for now. You’ll be back some day.

Creepy drone footage captures abandoned settlement in Greece3m00s

Creepy drone footage captures abandoned settlement in Greece

Enjoy a flight over a place that as beautiful as it may seem, has a dark history. We fly over the settlement of "Dionysos" near Sitia, Crete. In the late 1990's SOE company presented the ambitious plan for the creation of this settlement. The settlement began to be built, but soon there were quarrels as, among other things, the Analouka Beach next to the settlement collects the most rubbish of the Aegean Sea and so their plans for "idyllic summers in the sand" were reduced to rubble. The current owners are trying to reform the settlement, but it is a difficult project. Check out the cool view from above!

Drone captures majestic cave in Corinth, Greece2m51s

Drone captures majestic cave in Corinth, Greece

There is a special place in Corinth, which does not look like any other. The vertical rocks of the coastline near the village of Strava Korinthias are interrupted by a natural, stone, huge arch. Entering the arch, on the right, there is a cave that is home to a magnificent beach with fine white pebbles that give the water the turquoise color. The beach and arch are a real "monument of nature" that we have never met elsewhere in Greece. Due to the fact that the beach is in the cave, the sun never "sees" it, so it's always cool and you don’t have to wear sunscreen! Access is possible either by boat or by a difficult path that is small in length. Enjoy the flight!

Drone Captures Greek Island's Hidden Gem2m16s

Drone Captures Greek Island's Hidden Gem

Enjoy a flight over White Beach, or Hawaii as the locals call it. It's located in Chalkidiki, on the second leg (Sithonia) and more specifically on the island of Diaporos, opposite Vourvourou. On your next visit to Chalkidiki, do not miss to visit it and enjoy the white sand, its elaborate rocks and its shallow, crystal clear waters. This bird’s eye perspective gives the viewer the perfect sight of this pristine landscape and waterfront. Few people can say they have ever seen such a beautiful natural sight. Greece is known for its historical tributes that tourists flock to from all over the world. The entire country is entrenched with history, and there are endless sights to visit and learn about. However, the history is not the only rich thing here that brings in massive numbers of tourists, because the other aspect that this place is known for is its naturalistic beauty. This is obviously evident in this video. Watching this video can almost make you feel like you are there in the chopper, floating over this beautiful landscape. Places such as this one are destinations that people crave to visit because of the relaxing effect it has on our minds and bodies. The old saying of “no one needs a vacation like the man who just came back from vacation” may be true for many places and many different activities, but we are hard pressed to say that no one could go back home after visiting this site in any sort of tension. The water is so unbelievably clear that it almost looks like a special effect that cannot be real, but of course, it is real. Sit back and try to just take in this beauty. It will give you a momentary escape from whatever else is going on around you. Even the background music here adds to this feeling of intense tranquility. It is definitely fitting to this sighting. The video also shows a few groups and families out on the water in their boats enjoying the incredible surroundings. Even the rock formations on the edges of the water are beautifully constructed. Another interesting feature for this particular destination is the weather and temperatures. This part of the world has a beach like setting, but it does not always have the intense heat and humidity that other tropical looking places will have. That makes this a very attractive tourist spot for many visiting families to travel to. Visitors can enjoy the beauty and serenity of a beachy, tropical paradise , and they can also have a few other days in this beautiful country to visit all of the historical sites. These are among some of the oldest in the world, so it is always recommended to tourists that they try to do both. Have a few days of amazement and excitement in the cities, and then spend the last half of your vacation on the beautiful beaches. You are sure to go back home relaxed. Do not forget to take pictures either, because all of your friends are going to be jealous.

Beach in Crete, Greece is impossible to keep clean2m45s

Beach in Crete, Greece is impossible to keep clean

Crete island in Greece is famous for its incredibly beautiful beaches. But there is also a place in Crete where things are not like that. Analoukas Beach in Lasithi is one of the most typical examples of a beach, where vast quantities of garbage - mainly plastic - that travel the Aegean Sea are drawn by the wind and strong sea currents and end up in this location. At times there have been many cleaning efforts (the latter at the end of 2017 by WWF), but the beach is again more dirty than ever, as if it were the dump of the Aegean Sea.

Drone captures submerged ancient city in Greece

Enjoy a magnificent flight from the "Blue Lagoon" of Corinth, just east of Corfos, with a beach that impresses with the exotic color of its waters. Apart from the rocks, these shades are also due to human activity, as the Mycenaean city of Kalamianos, which has been immersed for the most part, is at the site. On these ruins of the city, white sand has created a paradise of beauty that we enjoy today. Access is from an adjacent dirt road and little walking or by boat. Enjoy the flight and cool off!

Castle Of Parga Stands Proud Against The Sands Of Time2m37s

Castle Of Parga Stands Proud Against The Sands Of Time

This is the castle of Parga, a castle that was built nearly a thousand years ago to protect the town of Parga from potential invaders. Parga is located in the northwestern area of Greece along the Ionian coast. Because of Parga’s close proximity to the Ionian Sea, Parga was vulnerable to attacks from pirates. The castle was damaged several times throughout the course of history by invaders from other countries as well as pirates. The first repair of the castle of Parga happened in the 13th century. This repair wasn’t so much because of an attack. This was simply because the Venetians were gaining more control of the surrounding area and they wanted to make the castle more powerful and durable. The second repair of the castle of Parga occurred in 1572. The castle was subject to several attacks before the repair of the castle. The first time the castle was damaged was in the 15th century, when the castle was under control by the Ottoman Empire. Nearly 100 years later, Hayreddin Barbarossa (also known as “Red Beard”) attacked the already damaged castle, causing significant damage. The Venetians wanted to repair the castle of Parga after Red Beard’s attack, but the castle was attacked again by the Ottoman Empire in 1572. After this event, the castle was repaired once again. This time, the repair was very successful. The Castle of Parga would continue to last for hundreds of years. The castle of Parga was eventually sold along with the rest of Parga to Ali Pasha of Ioannina in the early 19th century. Shortly before then, Parga had been taken over by France. The population of Parga was not happy with the French rule, which led to the selling of Parga to Ali Pasha by the British. The castle of Parga still stands to this day as an artifact of Greek history. It provides an amazing view over the town of Parga and the Ionian coast. The castle is also an amazing example of Venetian architecture. There is a secret path built inside that leads to the sea, which could be a great place to go for a walk. If you don’t want to go for a walk, there are several different attractions inside of the castle. You can visit the jails, warehouses, and other areas where supplies were stored such as guns. The castle of Parga is now open for tourist visits! A cafeteria was built inside of the castle to provide food to tourists. What could be better than visiting such an interesting piece of history while also being able to enjoy delicious Greek cuisine? The castle of Parga also has a gift shop, so you can take a piece of history with you wherever you go. The castle of Parga is a great place to visit on your next tour of Greece. It is a castle that has stood the test of time and protected Parga for hundreds of years, and is now a timeless piece of history with an amazing view both inside and out.
