LanzaroteAn Island UNESCO Biosphere Reserve
Tailor-made holidays to Lanzarote
This island has rapidly emerged as a popular dive destination and is earning a growing reputation as one of the most attractive diving locations in Europe. No surprise really, as the same volcanic activity that has shaped the surface has also had an enormous impact underwater, creating some incredible dive sites characterised by dramatic rock formations.
Lanzarote is the most easterly of the Canary Islands off the coast of north-western Africa consisting of seven large islands and six smaller ones. Renowned for their year-round warm temperatures and the rugged beauty, the combination of stunning diving and regular flight options from the majority of regional UK airports makes it easy to see why this is the ideal destination for divers looking for a family holiday in summer or winter getaway. With a flight time of only fours hours and Safari Dive Centre directly on the beach, divers have access to the best dive sites on offer.
Divers of all levels of experience are catered for thanks to the stunning diving available including reefs, caves and wrecks. The rocks are covered in anemones, sponges and soft corals and are home to a variety of marine life, including grouper, tuna, barracuda, monkfish, moray, octopus, rays and seahorses. It is also possible to see dolphins and whales at certain times of the year.
The bay is protected by rocky outcrops and is suitable for beginners and the more experienced diver. Near the shore the sea bed is sandy and drops away to steep volcanic walls. The harbour wall wreck dive site is a designated Underwater Park containing a number of wrecks.
