La Herradura

Located on the plateau of Herradura, the dive site boasts two buoys within the marine reserve. However, it's crucial for divers to note that only zone C and B are open for exploration, as zone A is off-limits. Notably, the plateau is adorned with numerous captivating canyons, creating a visually stunning underwater landscape. However, due to the tendency for strong currents in this area, it is advisable that beginners refrain from diving here.

Often referred to as the "kinder garden" of the marine reserve, this dive site offers a unique and enchanting experience. During springtime, the waters are teeming with fish-babies, offering divers a rare glimpse into the early stages of marine life. As the year progresses, the site becomes a bustling hub for adult marine species.

With a visibility of 21 meters and a maximum depth of 24 meters, this dive site provides ample opportunities for divers of all levels. Both beginners and advanced divers can enjoy the wonders that this Spanish diving spot has in store. Close by, you'll find the charming locations of La Restinga, El Pinar de El Hierro, and Santa Cruz de Tenerife in the breathtaking Canary Islands of Spain. Plan your dive adventure at this remarkable dive site to immerse yourself in the beauty of the underwater world.
