El Arco

El Arco is a very special site in Cabo Tiñoso. Above water you will see an impressive rock arch large enough for boats to pass through. One of the rock’s sides is used at this dive site as a mooring point. The dive has an average depth of 20 meters.

You will find a great variety of life underwater, with many algae formations as it moves away from the walls.
