Diving in Los Gigantes
The area of Los Gigantes is one of the most beautiful dive sites on the island. A wonderful place to get you started in this new sport or for experts to find new sites to add to their checklist.
The Atlantis area is one of the most outstanding, as its mythical name attests. This place was formed thousands of years ago, when multiple volcanic eruptions ravaged this area of the island. The solidified lava mimics a kind of ruined city formed by basaltic columns. This triangular reef formation is located only a few minutes away from Puerto de Los Gigantes, a departure point for expeditions.
The descent will be between 15 and 30 metres deep and you will be able to visit sea caves and discover a multitude of small marine fauna and flora. Moray eels, samas, gorgonians and anemones are some of the species you will find on your way to the depths.
