The Murcia coastline in south-east Spain boasts a wealth of amazing marine life, underwater landscapes and historical shipwrecks to explore in some of the country’s most acclaimed dive sites including Cabo de Palos – one of the best scuba areas in Europe.
Cabo de Palos is located in a privileged setting on the open sea and features numerous species of marine life while, to the north-west, a series of fabulous reefs and historical wreck sites have earned Hormigas Islands an excellent reputation among the diving community.
Isla Grosa is also considered among the best dive sites in the Mediterranean, set amidst stunning scenery and extensive sea-grass meadows, while Cartagena offers one of the Region’s most fascinating and unspoilt areas to explore numerous underwater historical and archaeological wonders.
