Playa Jablillo in Costa Teguise

Playa Jablillo in Costa Teguise is around about 200m wide and is the smallest beach of Costa Teguise. It is Daivoon’s “housebay” and offers ideal conditions for try dives and beginner courses. The large stone wall separating the bay from the open ocean provides shelter from big waves and harsh current.

Photographers and experienced divers will also find countless things to enjoy on this easy and relaxed dive.

Playa Jablillo is our recommendation to anyone who wishes to experience our beautiful underwater realm for the first time in a calm and safe environment.

The beach offers an easy entrance and leads to a variety of underwater habitats. Many creatures find protection in the bay with ideal conditions making it a perfect nesting site for many species. The bay is home to arrow crabs, starfish, sepia and sea hares etc and plays host to various schools of colourful fish species. At high tide the maximum depth is about 5m which also makes the bay a great place to snorkel.

The stone wall is submerged at high tide which gives us the opportunity to leave the bay and dive outside. Along the wall barracudas, moray eels and sepia will be there to greet you in this wonderful underwater landscape. With a little luck you will be able to catch a glimpse of a beautiful ray here as well. With a maximum depth of about 15m, this spot is ideal for junior divers, families and open water students alike.

Lost Knickers Beach

A great dive site close to Costa Teguise, which is known locally as “Lost Knickers” (don´t ask!). The entrance can be a little awkward over lava rocks, at the edge of which divers can enter the drink. The entry point also has some boulders forming some natural stairs which serve as the exit point.

Once in the water, there is a short surface swim to a buoy and the dive starts with a descent at 5m.

Divers are rewarded for the slightly tricky entry; as a very impressive submerged lava landscape is revealed, where it’s possible to find many creatures such as octopus, parrot fish, sea hares, and cuttlefish to name a few. As always, caution is advised with the sea urchins, especially during the exit.

Heading directly away from the coast, the broken lava field gradually drops to about 18m where the impressive sheer reef wall bottoms out 30+ meters. This wall is home to many pelagic species including amberjacks, rays and tuna. In the overhangs on the wall one can find orange tree coral, slipper lobsters, morays and cleaner shrimp. Resting on the sand or patrolling the wall it is also common to see angelsharks during the dive.

Because of the slightly more strenuous entrance, exit and depth profile this dive site is reserved for appropriately qualified divers with at least 50 logged dives.

Costa Teguise reef

The Reef of Costa Teguise offers an abundance of marine life. Here we can find loads of nooks, crannies and caves for advanced divers to explore. You will likely find groupers, red hogfish, triggerfish, white breams and tree corals.

The dive will be done from a boat and you will find the reef about 500 meters outside of Playa Jabllilo, which is why we need a boat 🙂 . Due to the amazing length of the reef there is always something new for you to explore. Because of the rarety of divers at this divesite, we find that the fishes are still very eager to connect to us divers.

Often times we have good chances of spotting rays and angelsharks alike.

Los Ancones

The Los Ancones reef, is a typical northern reef: a natural staircase brings you to a small reef at about 12m depth.

You have all the time you need to have a look for sponges, fish, nudibranchs etc. Loads of nosy fish accompany you. There is a seagrass meadow, which is rare in Lanzarote. Its usually filled with a lot of marine life. You will also find shoals of fish and there is a good chance to see angelsharks and rays as well.

The max. depth is 20m, which makes it a great divesite for Open Water Divers, photographers and divers who don´t want to go to deep. This divesite is especially nice for photographers since the seagrass meadow sets a beautiful scene and since it is not too deep you have a bunch of natural light to brighten up your pictures.

Due to the fact that this site is rarely dived you have an abundance of marine life and they are very curious about us divers.
