General information about the country
Spain — the country that is well known for bullfighting — is very large and extensive. It includes territories of the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, and many lakes and rivers. You can snorkel along the entire coast, and you will often find yourself delighted with what you encounter underwater.
Most blogs that report encounters on the underwater world of Spain, often describe the Costa Brava region or the Canary Islands. But those areas are only the tip of the diving iceberg. All you have to do is peek at a map and you will notice that there is much more diving destinations to discover than just these popular ones. The aforementioned Costa Brava spans only a small percentage of the 3904-kilometer (4964, if you count its island) long coastline of Spain.
Why is Spain such a popular destination?
Diving around the mainland, especially along the coast of the sea, will not always yield one of the most fascinating diving experiences, because rocks and patches of sand can get boring. That said, there are a lot of cephalopods there, and in Andalusia, in autumn, you can come across Sunfish (Mola piers). There some nice wrecks to explore as well.
Spain also has a lot of islands. Dives around, for example, the Balearic Islands can provide a lot of pleasant experiences. For example, Ibiza, which is better known for being the party capital of Europe, is full of tourists during the summer, yet charming and peaceful in the spring and late autumn.
Spain is also a country known for its sophisticated cuisine, fine wine and juicy fruits. It is a place where you can rest, drink beer, and explore interesting places — even on land. This is very good information for our families and friends (and especially those who do not dive).
