Dive Site La Bombilla


Unload the car, build the equipment, change, buckle on and walk 10m. One of the shortest ways to the water is to be found in La Bombilla. A small fishing village, largely illegally built, on a piece of land that was not there until 1949, before a volcanic eruption. Cute little houses adorn the roadside or rather the gravel road.

The Lava Tongues

Along this, there are several frozen lava tongues that draw into the deep. One can see, among other things, Black Corals, Red Gorgonians, large cylinder roses, sometimes rays and Cuttlefishes.
