The subtropical climate here, (the average winter temperature is 18º), allows all year round diving. Although Mediterranean, we are close enough to the Straits of Gibraltar to be affected by the Atlantic Stream, causing this area to have a great deal more marine life than most other Mediterranean dive sites.
The diving in this area is scenic. Cliffs and walls, caverns, grottos and caves. As for marine life, octopus are common, congers and morays are frequently seen, particularly in some of the caves, plus squid, dasmil, wrasse, grouper and scorpion fish. Sun, or 'moon fish' gather around the base of some of the rocky outcrops. Soft and hard corals, plus an amazing variety of nudi branchis and flat worms provide an array of colours.
There are several Dive Centres to suit your needs, in the picturesque port of Marina del Este, in La Herradura, in Almuñécar & in Nerja. We will happily help you to get in touch with any of these.
