Our dive centres are ideally placed for access to the Marine Reserves of Cabo Tiñoso (La Azohia) and Islas Hormigas (Cabo Palos), and also a number of Wrecks and Cave Systems. These two areas represent very different environments – the cliffs and caves of Cabo Tiñoso and the underwater pinnacles of Islas Hormigas.
Costa Calida is home to the Marine Reserves of Cabo Tiñoso and Islas Hormigas. These Marine Reserves offer ideal conditions for recreational diving for divers of all levels.
Costa Calida is the only coastal region in Spain that contains two Marine Reserves. The Marine Reserves are protected areas, containing 90% of species found in the mediterranean. These Marine Reserves represent two of the most important areas of biodiversity in the whole of the Spanish Coastline.
There are a number of wreck sites across the Costa Calida, at various depths, with wrecks of various sizes and conditions. Most of the shipwrecks in this area are from the First World War, but have been preserved in excellent condition. The wrecks situated within the Islas Hormigas Marine Reserve also benefit from a wide range of biodiversity because of the protected status of the area.
9 of the wrecks in the Islas Hormigas Marine Reserve lay at depths ranging from 36m to 60m, .6 further wrecks lay at depths between 80m and 120m.
This wide range of dive sites within a marine reserve makes the area a dream destination for Technical Divers and Wreck Explorers.
The Cueva del Agua cave (La Azohia) is the most famous cave in the area, and is one of a number cave systems in the Costa Calida region. This cave is a dream destination for experienced cave divers, providing over 3,000m of lines with a water temperature of 30 degrees throughout the year. This makes Cueva del Agua unique within Europe.
The cave systems range in size and difficulty, and include both inland and coastal caves.
