Diving in La Palma

Known as La Isla Bonita, La Palma lives up to its name by offering some of the world’s most spectacular submerged volcanic landscapes. Its frequent and recent eruptions have turned some of the dive sites into true time machines, allowing you to soar over vertiginous cliffs while observing the remnants of where fire meets sea. Thanks to its privileged location in the Atlantic Ocean, La Palma’s warm water temperatures offer fantastic Canary Islands marine life encounters with benthic and pelagic species, turning the island of La Palma into a true haven of biodiversity.
