Black Beach

This divesite is named after the tiny little black beach on the corner of the old harbor in Puerto del Carmen. It also goes by the name of “Casa Chucho – House of the rays”, because the area is home to rays of all shapes and sizes, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled.

There’s a small rock wall to step down onto the shingle beach, but the guides are always there ready to lend a hand. The site offers a mixture of beautiful hang overs and unearthly rock structures for the divers to explore.

Following the Harbour wall takes us steadily down to the end of the reef at about 39m. Here there is some beautiful topography and in amongst the rock formations it is possible to see large groupers who almost seem to pose for the camera.

This is a fantastic site for open water and advanced divers alike, there is so much to see and explore in the shallower depth ranges Angel Sharks, Rays, Sea Hares, Cuttlefish and Octopus to name but a few.

This entry point also offers an alternative route to the Blue Hole swim through, with a beautiful wall, many over hangs and a small shrimp cave to explore on the way.

When the tides and currents are favourable, this entry point also allows for a lazy drift dive along the wall, exiting at either the steps or Playa Chica beach.
