Although the Mediterranean waters around the Costa del Sol aren’t particularly rocky or deep, conditions are good for diving, especially if you’re A beginner as the relatively calm seas and gentle tides make diving easier. There are a surprising number of marine species around the Costa del Sol, but more adventurous divers may wish to explore the waters east of Nerja or nearer the Strait where there are several wrecks. Hunting with spears or harpoons is prohibited. If you want to learn to dive, most diving clubs and schools on the coast offer tuition leading to the world-recognised PADI qualification.
Even if you’re an experienced diver, never dive alone make sure you have above water support when diving.
