This volcanic dike, which emerges from the depths of Las Playas and juts out above the sea, is one of the natural symbols of the island of El Hierro. You can swim around the wall, which drops to almost 50 metres and offers a splendid view of a wealth of underwater flora and fauna.
Species that represent the island’s sea life
This dive is well sheltered from the currents so diving conditions are ideal almost all year round. During the dive you will find colonies of giant tubeworms, moray eels, scrawled filefish, spotted burrfish, jack mackerel, amberjacks, and more. However, to enjoy this dive in all its splendour, it is better to do it in summer, when there is usually more life.
