Best Diving Destinations in Fuerteventura
The Most Beautiful Dive Sites in Fuerteventuraall 20 dive sites
Fuerteventura is one of the Canary Islands, in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa, that was declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in May 2009. Fuerteventura is an elongated island running north-south, with the longest white-sand beaches of all the archipelago. The main tourist resorts lie at opposite ends of the island: at the northern tip is Corralejo, and at the south part lies Morro Jable. While having fully developed tourist facilities, the island caters more for visitors attracted by its rugged natural beauty, that includes large plains, sand dunes, lavascapes, and volcanic mountains. Fuerteventura is an ideal destination for surfers and for scuba divers. Divers will like this place due to the diverse marine life, caves, tunnels, overhangs, rock formations, and sandy, shallow areas to be found on its ocean beds. The main diving areas are concentrated in 3 zones: the north (Corralejo), the NNE (Caleta) and the south (Jandia). All these zones have a mixture of volcanic lava base with sands. Dive sites are well-known for their abundance of fish.
