One of the characteristics of the waters around the Benidorm island area is its habitual transparency, a virtue that divers always appreciate and even more so when you combine this with its interesting topography and varied marine life as occurs on this dive.
On the North East face of the island we will use one of the mooring buoys and descend initially to a depth of 6m. From there we will make a relaxed descent to a maximum depth of 22m. Here we willencounter huge rock boulders that diminish in size as we get further away from the wall and start to cross a sandy. The boulders start to get bigger again as we near the island.
The suggested route here is to begin the dive descending on the mooring buoy line following a parallel course to the island navigating through the huge rocks that are home to sea breams, sargos, octopus and the regular sighting of barracuda. When we follow a SW heading, the sea bed changes from loose stone to sloping rock. At this point we ascend to a depth of 14m as we get closer to the wall. Here will find the big rocks again and can appreciate the stunning light effects caused bun the shimmering sunlight creeping through the caves. Following the wall we have on our left we can return to our ascent line slowly off gassing the accumulated nitrogen.
