Nocturnal marine life in the Marine Reserve at La Restinga
For both experienced and beginner divers who want to discover the 'nightlife' of the island of El Hierro, the southern locality of La Restinga is an excellent dive spot. The depths around the entrance to the fishing port of La Restinga have great visibility and the marine life there is ideal for night dives. Its rocky bottom is home to kaleidoscopic angel fish, multi-coloured lobsters and sand eels with their penetrating gaze.
