With its easy access by land and spectacular marine life, Playa Chica is the perfect place for a night dive in Lanzarote. The small cove on Playa Chica is easy to reach and is surrounded by the tourist resort of Puerto del Carmen, in the southeast of the island. The rich, sandy sea floor, shallow waters no more than 10 metres deep, surprisingly crystal-clear water and two sea walls that keep the waves at bay all guarantee an exciting and safe introduction to night diving.
Dive during a full moon in Puerto del Carmen
After a comfortable walk from the beach, divers descend rapidly to a sandy bottom with rocky reefs and spectacular marine life: rolling fields of garden eels, iridescent cuttlefish, timid sole, bright shellfish and stealthy octopus searching for unsuspecting prey. The dive is unbeatable during full moons and divers can recharge their batteries post-dive at one of the many restaurants in Puerto del Carmen.
