Diving in Andalusia

Andalucia, an autonomous community in southern Spain, is the most populous and the second largest community in the country. The beautiful and culturally rich region, officially recognized as a “historical nationality”, is divided into eight provinces: Almería, Cádiz, Córdoba, Granada, Huelva, Jaén, Málaga and Seville, its capital.

Located in the south of the Iberian Peninsula, and facing northern Africa and the Strait of Gibraltar, it is the only European region bordering the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. It is renowned for its diving sites. In fact, it is becoming more and more popular with divers on account of its year round clear warm waters, as well as the beauty and tranquility of its seabed. To the east, the coastline is more rugged, while to the west gentle sandy slopes are ideal for beginners, there are also reefs to explore and plenty of wrecks housing colorful marine life.

There are many excellent locations to go diving and discover the fascinating underwater marine life Andalucia has to offer. Sites along the Andalucian coast including Estepona, Nerja, Tarifa, Almuñécar, and Cabo de Gata, are worth exploring and you’ll be dazzled by the variety from gullies and sea walls to deep dive sites and exciting swimthroughs to the shallow reefs teeming with fish, soft coral and vegetation.
