The Santa Margerita dive site, full of "leaky" tunnels, illuminated by the sun from various angles, passing through
several caves, chimneys and openings (such as a window or arch), is breathtaking and one of the best places I've
had the pleasure to dive.
The diving bases in Spain are usually well or very well prepared.
When looking at diving in the Atlantic, you must be prepared for more difficult conditions and higher waves.
On the other hand, the ocean fauna is often different from that in the Mediterranean — you will have
more opportunities to meet larger animals.
Tarifa is located on the most protruding part of continental Spain (and the whole of Europe). Due to
the winds blowing there, it is probably more attractive to windsurfers than it is to divers. Standing on
the beaches of Tarifa, or diving off its coast, you can clearly see the African coast. The distance from
the beaches of Europe to the beaches of Africa is just over a dozen kilometers. The terrain is rich in rocks,
isthmuses and wrecks. A great place to immerse yourself is in
San Andres Miňo. The name is associated
with the wreck which sank there on March 29, 1856. Now, after over 150 years, its remains are scattered over a large
area and are largely overgrown with sea creatures. The sea has claimed the wreck for the rest of time and will
use it as an apartment for many creatures.
Spain certainly belongs to some of the most interesting places on the European diving map. Good food,
friendly people, great wine and exciting dives. What more could you desire?
