Playa Chica – Bay

One of the most diverse diving areas on the island is Playa Chica. It offers scope for everybody – no matter if you are a swimmer, snorkeler, or diver – beginner or professional.

Chica bay offers “confined water” – conditions and because of that we use and recommend it for try-out dives, courses, kids-diving and refresher courses. This dive site has an easy entry from the beach and two long lava tongues protect the shallow area from waves and currents. This allows people to start their first underwater attempts in a safe way. Compared to a pool however, you can see thousands of things like anemones, crabs, starfish, sea urchins, cuttlefish, sea hares, many fish species and much more.

If you dive further out, you can go to the left or right side of the bay and explore the unterwater world in about 12m depth. If you are lucky, you can find angel sharks, different types of rays, octopus and even sea horses in this area as well.
