DIVING IN CHARCO DEL PALO, LANZAROTE
It stands out for its purely volcanic rocky landscape, sautéed with white sand. In this place there is an excellent representation of many of the Canarian ecosystems in a very small space. In the high part, the rocky bottom is covered with a colorful mantle of algae, below 10 m the diadema hedgehog has generated an extensive blanquizal and the rock, before disappearing in the sand fields, usually form cliffs and caves. Below 40-50 m, black coral forests grow only accessible to trained divers.
The access is from the ground and in the car park, located relatively close, we can equip comfortably, then go down with the equipment by a path and enter the water by one of the two metal stairs.
As the diving area is very wide, two routes are suggested, one to the right of the entry point and the other to the left. Both routes allow adaptation to different levels, varying the maximum depth of the dive. In caves and hollows it is interesting to look for animals such as moray eels, octopi, giant anemones, briotas and even narwhal shrimp.
When swimming above the sand, it is important to observe carefully as angels, scrapie and mutts are frequent.
