Diving in Spain

Spain has very many dive sites.

In the marine reserve of Medes Islands, which is said to be the best diving place in Spain, you can see shoals of barracuda, jacks, bonito, groupers and eagle rays. Pedra de Deu gives an opportunity of wall diving with depths of 12 - 35 meters. There are also two tunnels: Cow Cave and Dolphin Cave inhabited by various fish and corals.

In Cap de Creus, the first marine/terrestrial nature reserve in Catalonia, you can explore rocky cliffs, inlets, and the wreck of the Llanishen, a British ship sunk during the First World War and lying at a depth of 10-17m in the bay of Es Caials.

The waters of Costa Brava keep many shipwrecks. The largest of them is the Reggio Messina (115 meters long), a train transporter ferry, deliberately sunk in 1991.

The marine reserve in Almuñecar has abundant marine life. The depth, which varies from 9 to 40 meters, good visibility and lots of caverns, makes it a good diving place both for beginners and for experienced divers.

Off the seven Canary Islands divers will find perfect visibility (often more than 30m), rich and colorful flora and fauna and beautiful underwater landscapes.

Off the coast of Galicia, often called the Coast of Death, there are over 400 known wrecks. Cape Finisterre, located on one of the most important maritime routes in the world, has caused lots of human casualties and shipwrecks for many centuries. The most massive shipwreck happened in 1596 when 25 ships of the Armada were blown by the storm against the coast.
