Scuba diving in Punta Blanca
This site is truly worth visiting because it has swim-throughs, overhangs, and the reef, which ranges from 12-22m/39-72ft deep at the base of the wall. Away from the wall there is an area with huge boulders and several huge stone blocks at a maximum depth of 30m/98ft, where large shoals of grunts and several different species of bream can be seen. The geologically fascinating environment with rich plant and animal life makes it an exciting and challenging multi-level dive that will be very exciting for experienced divers. The site is an ideal spot for underwater photography.
