One of the most interesting dive sites in this area is the wreck of the ship la Peniche, which has been resting
on the seafloor for over 50 years at a depth of 28 meters.
However, when it comes to wrecks, the largest concentration is located on the east coast, namely in the vicinity
This large port city was founded by the Greeks in the year 600 BC. It is worth visiting
this lovely town, especially its highest hill (162 m above sea level), where the Basilica of Notre Dame de la Garde
was built and stands to this day. From the hill you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Mediterranean and some
of its islets.
Towards Italy, the charming town of Menton
is an interesting place. There are plenty diving centers
here as well as diving sites, among which is the wreck of a helicopter. The underwater world here is quite interesting.
It is full of small and large caves as well as mountain depressions. There is a lot of flora and fauna, too. Here you
can find crabs, moray eels, crawfish and lots of fish such as mullets, ostriches, scorpions, chestnut chromis fish and others.
In summary, France is gorgeous, picturesque, historic, and wonderful — and all these benefits come at a premium.
Those on the Atlantic coast will be more demanding, and the water may be a bit colder, but they are still sure
to impress. The diving centers in France are professional and well prepared. Keep in mind that in France,
you must have a medical certificate in order to go scuba diving. Without it, diving centers cannot let you enter
the water — so make sure you have one, and do not forget to bring it!
