Diving in Spain is one of the best in Europe with famous diving spots such as the Canary Islands, the Balearic Islands, Costa Brava from Barcelona to Cadaquès and famous dives such as Medes Islands marine reserve. Spain is a great destination for scuba divers who love cavern diving and groupers. A little less known, you can also give a try at diving in Costa Calida.
The marine life in Spain is mostly about groupers, octopus, barracudas, moray eels and nudibranchs. It’s the right place to go for both beginners and experienced divers. Due to the water temperatures, regarding scuba gear, it is most common to scuba dive there in a 7 mm wetsuit. The best time of the year is often from July to September, but the Canary Islands can be dived year-round. The best dive sites can be reached by boat.
