  • Cap de Creus, Girona: The Cap de Creus is a maritime-terrestrial natural park, which was declared as such to maintain its exceptional natural heritage intact, as it is one of the best-preserved areas of the Mediterranean.

Costa de Almería – Cabo de Gata

The area is volcanic in origin and its coastline is a genuine paradise for scuba diving. Warm, clean, crystal-clear waters provide great visibility, the water temperature is relatively mild from January to December and the sea is calm.

Costa del Sol – Las Bóvedas

Las Bóvedas is a large reef, which stretches almost 1km, 5km from Marbella. This is quite a busy location, with divers and snorkelers due to the sheer number of marine species that call this site their home.
