Dive Site Las Cabras


In 1971, I was not born yes, the earth quaked and the volcano Teneguia created a new piece of land on La Palma. Las Cabras, a small beach, a few bushes, otherwise almost like on the moon. But as soon as you put your head under water, there is hardly a bare rock. With its numerous holes and columns you can dive here several times and will always find something new.

The Archway

In principle, you do the same dive as “The Abyss”, but you stay shallower, exploring other holes. On the way back, you will pass through a small archway that hosts some morays and anemones. I have done two very similar dives here quite often and it has always paid off.
