Scuba diving in Tunnels of Love
The Tunnels of Love dive site consists of sets of tunnels with rock bridges and arches. It starts at a depth of 8m/26ft, with a sequence of tunnels that are 5-7m/16-23ft and 10-40m/33-131ft in length. After the diver passes through these, the dive goes deeper, to large rocks and a wall. The rocky bottom is at a depth of 26m/85ft. In the case of this dive, reaching the bottom does not mean the end: after going up for 8m/26ft, the diver can find the way into another set of tunnels, and continue diving there. Due to the complexity of the dive site structure, this site is only recommended for advanced-level divers with adventurous spirits.
