Diving in ihe Costa Tropical

The Costa Tropical and areas such as Castell de Ferro, Calahonda, Marina del Este and La Herradura have been a divers’ paradise for decades, both for the wealth of their sea beds and the beauty of their natural landscapes.

The numerous beaches along the Granada coast, particularly those of the Almuñécar area, are often separated by huge rocks or by gentle or steep hills, which means the cliffs and rocky areas often stretch right into the sea and make the area perfect for diving. Some of the best spots for this sport are Punta de la Mona, Tres Picos, the Cerro Gordo Cave, the Cantarriján Grottoes, Piedras Altas and the Natural Site of the Cliffs of Maro-Cerro Gordo at La Herradura, which is a divers’ heaven. Rare posidonia fields grow on the sea bed of this 395-hectare coastal area created by erosion.
