Surroundings

Stretching for over 200 kilometres from Gibraltar in the west, to Motril in the east, the Costa del Sol and Costa Tropical offers fantastic and varied diving. A profusion of marine life, along with a great underwater vista, makes for great diving in warm clear blue seas. All of these dive sites are within a 75-minute drive from our base.


La Herradura - 6 to 25 metres

A very beautiful bay that offers easy shore diving. Easy shore diving with the highlight being the ‘Tres Picos’ (Three Peaks). The western side of the headland of Punta De La Mona forms the rocky backdrop under the water, and it is this natural feature that provides us with the great diving. The seabed gently drops away as the underwater rock walls continue to tower above us, with the ‘Three Peaks’ rising to almost break the surface above us. The dive follows the base of the wall, and allows us to explore many of the gullies and vertical walls, and occasional swim through, where there is a profusion of aquatic life.  


Marina del Este – 12 to 40 mtrs plus

Situated on the east side of Punta de la Mona, this protected bay, with its small marina, offers multiple shore diving opportunities. The left of the bay has the marina wall, which is a shallow (18 mtrs) dive that follows the rocky outcrop and breakwater that forms the protection for the marina. Very scenic, lots of life, and possibility for long dive times. The middle of the bay has two reefs (14 & 25 mtrs), both which team with fish and vegetation, where the many gullies, cracks and boulders are great for exploring. The right side of the bay gives us our deeper diving (30 mtrs plus) and is a combination of vertical walls, rocky outcrops and deep gullies. This dive is where you can get to see the rare corals, large Groupers and if you’re lucky, the mola mola (sunfish).


For our deeper and technical diving we take a boat to the southern face of Punta de la Mona, where the walls drop near vertical from the surface to over 50 metres; spectacular wall diving!


Calahonda – 18 to 25 metres

A small coastal town east of Motril, where tucked into the very end of the beach is a great dive. The N340 road sits high atop the rocky sea wall, where our dive follows this cliff underwater, and explores the vertical walls. The start of the dive has a shallow reef that gently drops away from the cliff wall, and teems with juvenile fish and where the wall is festooned with soft corals and vegetation. 

This is also a great dive for your first night dive.


Rijanna – 9 to 18 metres

A beautiful beach with often no other divers or people to be seen! Our dive follows the rocky outcrop that drops into the sea, with plenty of chance for exploring the walls, and swim throughs that can be found. A memorable dive!
