Sardinia is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean. The Sardin-ians themselves say it's a "continent for itself", a virtual world of its own, full of magic: A beach, gleaming in unreal pink shades, red corals protect against the evil eye and the inhabitants seem to remain forever young. On Sardinia, the owners of luxury yachts adopt sheep, fish have gold in their bellies and a giant mussel supplies the material for legendary sea silk. No one is surprised, that the Madonna goes on a sea cruise once a year.

Ibiza is an island in the Mediterranean Sea, 79 kilometres (49 miles) off the coast of the city of Valencia, in eastern Spain. It is the third largest of the Balearic Islands, an autonomous community of Spain. Its largest cities are Ibiza Town (Catalan: Vila d'Eivissa, or simply Vila), Santa Eulària des Riu, and Sant Antoni de Portmany. Its highest point, called Sa Talaiassa (or Sa Talaia), is 475 metres (1,558 feet) above sea level. While it is one-sixth the size of nearby Majorca, Ibiza is over five times the size of Mykonos (Greece), or ten times the size of Manhattan Island. Ibiza has become famous for the association with nightlife and the electronic music that originated on the island. It is well known for its summer club scene which attracts very large numbers of tourists, though the island's government and the Spanish Tourist Office have controversially been working to promote more family-oriented tourism. Noted clubs include Space, Privilege, Amnesia, Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel, Pacha, DC10, Eden, and Es Paradis. Ibiza is the home of the noted "port" in Ibiza Town, a popular stop for many tourists and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Ibiza and the nearby island of Formentera to its south are called the Pine Islands, or "Pityuses". The official name of the island is in Catalan "Eivissa". Its name in Spanish is Ibiza. In British English, the name is usually pronounced in an approximation of the Spanish, whereas in American English the pronunciation is more anglicized, or closer to Latin American Spanish. The origin of the name of the island is in the Phoenician language: יִבּוֹסִים Yibosim. Ibiza is a rock island covering an area of 572.56 square kilometres (221.07 sq mi), almost six times smaller than Majorca, but over five larger than Mykonos (in the Greek Isles) or 10 times larger than Manhattan in New York City. Ibiza is the larger of a group of the western Balearic archipelago called the "Pityuses" or "Pine Islands" composed of itself and Formentera. The Balearic island chain includes over 50 islands, many of which are uninhabited. The highest point of the island is Sa Talaiassa, at 475 metres (1,558 ft). Eivissenc is the native dialect of Catalan that is spoken on Ibiza and nearby Formentera. Catalan shares co-official status with Spanish. Additionally, because of the influence of tourism and expatriates living in or maintaining residences on the island, other languages like German, English and Italian, are widely spoken. Polylinguality is the norm, not the exception. Ibiza is considered to be a popular tourist destination, especially due to its legendary and at times riotous nightlife centred around two areas: Ibiza Town, the island's capital on the southern shore and Sant Antoni to the West. Well-known nightclubs are Privilege, Amnesia, Space, Pacha, Eden, Es Paradís, Underground and DC10. During the summer, the top producers and DJs in dance come to the island and play at the various clubs, in between touring to other international destinations. Some of the most famous DJs run their own weekly nights around the island. Many of these DJs use Ibiza as an outlet for presenting new songs within the house, trance and techno genres of electronic dance music. The city has achieved renown worldwide fame as a cultural center for house and trance in particular, with its name often being used as a partial metonym for the particular flavor of electronic music originating there, much like Goa in India. Since 2005, the live music event, Ibiza Rocks, has helped to redefine the Ibiza party landscape. Bands such as Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, The Prodigy, and the Kaiser Chiefs have played in the courtyard of the Ibiza Rocks Hotel. And from 2013 Ushuaïa Ibiza "will be turned into a giant ant colony to coincide with the new ANTS dance music events every Saturday".

In the 2nd century BC, artistic and cultural activities reached their heights in the cities of Ionia, a densely populated area on the cost of modern-day Turkey, as well as on a cluster of islands off the eastern Mediterranean. Priene, Miletus, Delos, "Slave Island", Kos and Rhodes, home of the famous Colossus, are just some of the places we will be visiting. Ionia (Ancient Greek: Ἰωνία or Ἰωνίη; Turkish: İyonya) is an ancient region of central coastal Anatolia in present-day Turkey, the region nearest İzmir, which was historically Smyrna. It consisted of the northernmost territories of the Ionian League of Greek settlements. Never a unified state, it was named after the Ionian tribe who, in the Archaic Period (600--480 BC), settled mainly the shores and islands of the Aegean Sea. Ionian states were identified by tradition and by their use of Eastern Greek. Ionia proper comprised a narrow coastal strip from Phocaea in the north near the mouth of the river Hermus (now the Gediz), to Miletus in the south near the mouth of the river Maeander, and included the islands of Chios and Samos. It was bounded by Aeolia to the north, Lydia to the east and Caria to the south. The cities within the region figured large in the strife between the Persian Empire and the Greeks. According to Greek tradition, the cities of Ionia were founded by colonists from the other side of the Aegean. Their settlement was connected with the legendary history of the Ionic people in Attica, which asserts that the colonists were led by Neleus and Androclus, sons of Codrus, the last king of Athens. In accordance with this view the "Ionic migration", as it was called by later chronologers, was dated by them one hundred and forty years after the Trojan war, or sixty years after the return of the Heracleidae into the Peloponnese. From the 18th century BC the region was a part of the Hittite Empire with possible name Arzawa,which was destroyed by invaders during the 12th century BC together with the collapse of the Empire. Ionia was settled by the Greeks probably during the 11th century BC. The most important city was Miletus (the Milawanta of Hittites). Several centuries later Ionia was the place where western philosophy began and was the homeland of Heraclitus, Thales, Anaximander and Anaximenes. They were natural-philosophers of the Ionian school of philosophy and tried to explain the phenomena according to no-supernatural laws. They also searched a simple material-form behind the appearances of things (origin) and this conception had a great influence on the early archaic art in Greece.

Like a true adventurer, I stayed and filmed it... I worked out at the time it was a rare event and was correct, it was tide and wind that sucked the water out. This is at Canyamel in Majorca!

Ibiza is a city and municipality located on the southeast coast of the island of Ibiza in the Balearic Islands autonomous community. Although called Ibiza in English and Spanish, the official name is the Catalan Eivissa (as restored in 1986) and its inhabitants call it the Vila d'Eivissa or simply Vila ("Town"). It is divided into two main parts: the old town, called the Dalt Vila (literally "Upper Town"), located on a little mountain by the sea, and the modern part, called the Eixample ("extension"). The city, which has a population of 49,768 (2012), is the capital and most populous settlement of the island and of the Pine Islands group, which includes Ibiza and Formentera. It is widely known and visited for its exciting nightlife. Two of the island's most notable nightclubs, Pacha and El Divino, are located in Ibiza itself, whereas Space is located just south of the town, near the airport. Sights include the cathedral of Santa Maria d'Eivissa (14th century), located at the top of the Dalt Vila, and the Punic necropolis of Puig des Molins. Nearby is also the monument of Christ, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a 23 metre-high statue inspired by Christ the Redeemer, which is 3.1 miles (5.0 km) north of the city.

Greece has more than 16,000 kilometers (9,320 miles) of coastline, 200,000 beaches, 6,000 islands (and islets). Greece's coastline is by far the longest coastline in the Mediterranean sea, and the tenth longest in the world. The deepest point in the Mediterranean Sea is called the "Calypso Deep", it is located in the Ionian Sea in Greece, and is 5,267 meters deep (17,280 feet). -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The quality of coastal bathing waters in Greece is systematically monitored since 1988 (according to Directive 76/160/EEC), and since then Greece has been receiving excellent reports on it's bathing water sites, with more than 95% of them meeting the most stringent guide values (excellent quality). According to the 2012 European bathing water quality report of the European Environment Agency, Greece and Cyprus have the cleanest coastal bathing waters in Europe. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Regardless of your location in Greece, a beach won't be far away. Beaches in Greece have a serene, peaceful atmosphere. Most beaches have shallow, calm, crystal clear waters that make them ideal for young children and families. Due to the country's peninsular shape, big waves do not usually reach the beaches, except those that are exposed to the open ocean, which are mostly preferred by windsurfers. Apart from the long wide sandy beaches, and those lined with pine (in the North), or palm (in Crete) trees and lush green grass in the north, there are many small rocky, pebbly inlets, perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving. There are also numerous remote beaches that are only accessible by boat, and other secluded naturalist beaches lining the coasts of Greece, where nudism is quite prevalent. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Conditions in various beach destinations in the world can differ greatly. During the tourist season, Tropical Weather (in contrast to Mediterranean Weather), can produce unpleasant atmospheric conditions like: Sudden storms, monsoons, floods, clouds, extreme humidity and precipitation, unpleasantly warm sea temperature, dangerous strong ocean rip currents that can pull swimmers away from the shore without them even noticing and huge waves that can cause sea water to lose its clarity and become foamy, murky and dirty. Moreover, due to vast presence of algae, low salinity/iodine levels, excessive bacterial and micro-organic activity (which can be highly pathogenic), the sea color in the Tropical Zones can obtain a repulsive, slimy green color. In contrast to the Tropics, Greek summer is always hot, calm, sunny, cloudless and dry and the Greek sea is blue, clear and a lot safer, not only health-wise but also due to the fact that encounters with dangerous/venomous sea creatures and organisms is extremely rare in Greece, as such species are not endemic to the Mediterranean region. (There is only one anecdotal tale of a fatal shark attack in the Greek islands, and that was reported nearly a century ago). -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Video Info: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Music: 00:00 - 07:08 "Salt Tank - Sargasso Sea" (InternalRecords) 07:09 - 09:08 "Mikro - Eikones" (UndoRecords/ EMI /Warner) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Pictures: Mainly from Flickr / Panoramio / Trekearth accounts.

From the Lost Egyptian Underwater city to a cargo ship that had 200 million dollars worth of cargo HERE ARE THE STRANGEST DISCOVERIES MADE IN THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 6. Abandoned Naval Mines Due to extensive naval battle in some areas across the world, underwater mines were constructed as a sneaky way to sink a ship. But just because these are abandoned and pretty old, that doesn’t mean they’re not still dangerous. The oceans can be a dangerous place out there. The Mediterranean still contains active underwater mines which can go off from fishing boats or basically anything. Many were left from world war II or from the fascists to protect naval harbors. It’s not exactly clear how many naval mines are left over in the mediterranean sea and finding out is a risky business. The italian Navy still continues to remove deadly underwater mines especially in areas near naples.. In anycase, some of these abandoned mines, are still lurking around near Italy and can weigh up to 1000 pounds each. Some even believe that underwater mines might detonate ships from migrants coming from the south and might have been the cause why one with 300 people on board went missing.. So watch out! 5. First Boat Making Tools Thanks to this discovery found on the island of Crete, archaeologists can prove that sea travel took place at least 130,000 years ago. The previous known time people were able to trave l by boat was around 60,000 BC. Stone age tools like these axes were found in ancient shelters that some believe were used to construct some of the first boats used for transportation. They’re very similar to the tools used by our ancient ancestors known as the Homo Erectus. Since the island of Crete has been separated from the mainland of Greece for quite some time now, this leads archaeologists to believe that the only way settlers were able to get here was by some type of boat. How advanced were these boats they had, and what other places were discovered that we might not know about? 4. MS Zenobia A large ferry hit the seas in 1979 and on its very first voyage or maiden voyage, it capsized completely and sank less than a year later off the coast of Cyprus! It seemed as though there was possibly a problem with the steering. 200 million dollars worth of cargo was destroyed and it’s a rather embarrassing disaster for the Swedes despite there being no casualties. However not all is lost from the ship. It’s become a massive scuba diving hotpot, rated for being within the top 10 best scuba diving spots. Swimmers only need to make it down about 138 feet or so to witness the wreck underwater. Many scuba divers are given the chance to explore the mysterious wreckage. This photo here shows part of the seaweed covered propeller which only got to make one good trip. Here we see some trucks that have fallen all the way to the bottom and will never get the chance to hit the streets again. Some unique challenges are presented to even some of the most experienced divers out there, with little entrances into the ship 3 Caesarea Sunken Treasure Over 2600 coins dating back over 1000 years were discovered off the coast of Israel by scuba divers near the port city of caesarea. It’s the largest treasure trove found off of Israels mediterranean coast. The coins were originally minted in Egypt and Northern Africa and belonged to the Fatimid Caliphs Al Hakin and Al Zahir. The total weight of all the gold was roughly 16.6 pounds but historically priceless. No one is exactly sure why such a large amount of coins were discovered all in one place but it’s likely they were from taxes collected by the Egyptian government. Other theories would indicate that the hoard was possibly from a merchant ship that bartered with coastal cities along the mediterranean. It’s now considered to be a national treasure after everything was authenticated. The coins turned out to be in remarkable condition despite being at the bottom of the sea for over 1000 years. 2. Mv Panagiotis The Navagio Beach, also lovingly known as “The Shipwreck Beach” lies in an enchanting pool of Ionian Sea water, and it’s been named by some as “the most beautiful beach in the world”. The wrecked ship that famously lies on it’s shore was a ship suspected of selling contraband cigarettes. It was trying to get past the Greek Navy when it crashed into a rock during bad weather in 1980. It gives it a touch of character, wouldn’t you agree?? It looks sugary sandy from above, but the beach is actually covered in pebbles. It’s the most famous beach in Greece and unfortunately, it can only be accessed by boat. Tourists certainly enjoy coming to this one and expect to see some other beachgoers here. 1...

Marettimo is one of the Aegadian Islands in the Mediterranean Sea west of Sicily, Italy. It forms a part of the municipality (comune) of Favignana in the Province of Trapani. From Trapani, the island takes about an hour to reach. Marettimo is the second largest of the Aegadian Islands. The highest point is Monte Falcone with a height of 686 m (2,287 ft). The island has about 300 inhabitants in the winter and 700 in the summer (not including tourists), who mainly live from fishing and traditional hand-craft. Fishing is predominately conducted in the summer months. The ancient name of the island was "Hiera", perhaps a term of Spanish origin. However, the name "Hiera" is part of the Greek name "Hiera Nesos", which means "Sacred Island" in Greek. The name Marettimo comes from the words Mar (Sea) and Timo (Thyme) due to the profusion of thyme on the island. The island was an important observation point during Roman times, hence the Casa Romana, where it was easy observe passing maritime traffic. The sea routes between Italy and North Africa and Italy and Spain (via Sardinia) would pass Marettimo. There is a well restored Byzantine-Norman church adjacent to the Casa Romana. There are several impressive grottos around the islands coast and innumerable spots for excellent swimming in pristine waters on the western coast accessible only by boat. SOURCE : WIKIPEDIA

▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-full-documentaries ▶ Spanish video: http://planetdoc.tv/documental-completo-fondo-marino-de-cabrera-islas-baleares The Cabrera Archipelago National Park covers a surface area of 10.021 hectares, only 1,836 of which are on land. Eighteen islands and islets and the marine environment protect the land and aquatic species intimately related to the Mediterranean Sea. The Balearic Islands have a mild climate in winter and hot in summer. The erosion of the limestone has resulted in trimmed and uneven coastlines with a combination of impregnable cliffs with coves and paradise beaches. The isolation of the islands has resulted in a very high number of endemic species. Of the archipelago’s close to 450 species of vascular plants, 30 are endemic; the same is true of the land vertebrates, with the exception of the fowl, which have easy contact with the continent. The Cabrera sea bottom have tropical traits. The absolute clearness of its crystalline waters, free from continental clay and mud, produces a luminosity which allows for the existence of submarine vegetation at greater depths and therefore of the animals which live among the algae. In the area close to the surface the light is very intense enable the proliferation of plankton, algae and consequently the different species of fish, particularly herbivores. Further under, between thirty and forty metres, visibility is reduced. Large blocks of rock raise the relief of the ocean bed to form boundless caves and nooks and crannies which serve as places of refuge for the different fish species. More than two hundred fish species live in the waters of the Cabrera archipelago, from the diminutive whitebait measuring 5 centimetres to the scarce and gigantic sharks which can measure up to 12 metres. This variety, which has lured fishermen from nearby coasts since time immemorial, has become, since the creation of the National Park in April 1991, the goal of scuba diving fans. Conger eels are potentially dangerous animals. Behind their thick, fleshy lips they conceal a front row of long and powerful incisors and behind these another row of smaller but very sharp conical teeth. Despite their ferocious appearance, moray eels are timid fish which are only dangerous when forced to defend themselves. But their fear-inspiring faces have given them a terrible reputation while their neighbours, the conger eels, much more dangerous to man, are not considered a threat. The Cabrera Archipelago National Park is an example of its potential and its beauty, but also of the fragility of this threatened ecosystem which requires the joint effort of all bordering countries to guarantee its future.

Menorca (Minorca) is one of the Balearic Islands located in the Mediterranean Sea belonging to Spain. Its name derives from its size, contrasting it with nearby Majorca. With more beaches than the rest of the Balearic Islands put together, and offering a much lower-key atmosphere than its larger neighbour Majorca, holidays in Menorca put the spotlight on relaxation. Red sandstone and rugged cliffs give way to secluded coves and sedate waters. Lush green countryside is home to olive groves and orchards. Narrow cobbled streets tumble down to quaint fishing harbours. Music by: Govi - Andalusian Nights Armik - Pure Paradise
