How is the diving in la Caleta El Espigón?
In La Caleta we have the possibility of making two different dives.
In the first dive we follow the sandy bottom which is populated with the garden eels, It is also possible to see different rays in the area. Passing along the side we find the rocks which were created by the volcanic eruption many years before where we can find moray eels octopuses and different species hiding in the cracks and crevices.
On the second dive we follow the volcanic wall itself weaving to the left with plenty of small areas for the fish and morays to be hiding away in. Also we can find the Canarian lobsters hiding in the small caves.
