Scuba diving in Los Cristianos
Los Cristianos is a town in the municipality of Arona, situated on the South coast of the Canary Island of Tenerife. Tenerife South Airport is located in 17 km from it. Scuba diving is the top activity here and is suited for both beginners and certified divers. There are lots of dive sites consisting of spectacular volcanic scenery, swim-throughs, overhangs, caverns and wrecks. All sites are being relatively close to the shore and can be reached by a 15 minutes boat trip.
Among the nearby sites that are particularly interesting, Palm Mar Wall, Palm Mar Cave, Roncadores del Faro, El Meridian wreck (max depth 30m/98ft) and Condesito wreck (hull, cabin and engine room are intact, max depth 18m/59ft) could be named. The Caves at Pal Mar site is full of moray eels, including Mediterranean, brown and tiger morays, who live inside and outside the cave in its many crevices. Divers can view large rock formations before entering the cave. Descending to 16m/52ft, divers swim off the edge of a cliff down to the cave entrance at 30m/98ft. The cave itself is a mystery, as no one yet has explored how long the interior tunnel actually is. When divers reach 30m/98ft, a statue of the Virgin del Carmen and a smaller statue of a group of dolphins can be found.
