Dia islandDia is an uninhabited island off the nothern coast of Crete, approximately 7 nautical miles north of Heraklion. According to mythology, the island was created by Zeus.

Zeus looked down to his hometown Crete from Mount Olympus and saw the Cretans chasing his favorite goats (kri-kri).Those goats were Amalthia’s kids while Amalthia was the goat that nurtured Zeus as he was hiding from his father, Saturn, in the cave of Diktaion Andron. He was so mad about it and he decided to kill them all. So, he blew a lightning in the sea and a giant monster emerged.

Then, Poseidon, the god of the sea, reminded him of the protection that Kourites provided him as an infant and as a result Zeus decided to throw two rusks to the monster and then with a lightning he turned the monster into stone while the two risks was turned into islands and in this way Dia, Paximadi and Petalidi were created
