The Blue Hole

Shore dive  10m to 40m

Wall Dive- a great swim-through (the Blue Hole).

There are 2 small caverns further along the wall and a ‘mini pinnacle’ away from the main reef.

El Poril/Black Beach

Shore dive 5 to 30 m

A favourite of ours this dive site is only 2 minutes from our dive centre, with lots of fish life. It`s possible to dive there together with your buddy whenever you want on your own. El Poril is also home to a Geocache , ask us for more details.

Hotspot: El Poril at night and  Geocache Dive

The Cathedral

Shore dive – Wall and Reef – 10m to 35m

Mainly a wall dive leading to a very large cavern measuring nearly 15m in height and 20m in width at the entrance. The dive ends around the shallow arms of Playa Chica.

The Harbour Wrecks

Boat Dive – 12m to 40m

A group of purposely sunk wrecks, 1976, starting at about 12m depth, with the deepest being at 40m.

An interesting dive due to the fact that the wrecks are very well positioned along a wall and have something for everybody.

Playa Flamingo

Shore Dive 4m to18m

Dive across the white sands where Angel Sharks and Torpedo Rays hide to outside the breakwater where you can enjoy great visibility and marine life.

Museo Atlántico

The Museo Atlántico is the only underwater sculpture museum in Europe.

Divers can dive here amongst the impressive sculptures of artist Jason deCaires Taylor, famous for his underwater art.
