DIVING IN VERIL DE PLAYA CHICA, LANZAROTE
One wall, endless dives
Playa Chica is ideal for all types of diving, the shallow areas are perfect for the decompression stops of advanced divers who want to delve into the depths of the numerous and spectacular dives that can be done from this single point. Caves, underwater cliffs, volcanic tubes, deep corals, sharks and even unexpected encounters with whales are possible at Playa Chica. This place is the star point of diving in Lanzarote.
Lovers of the great walls can enjoy several routes close to the coast, since after the slight slope of sand a cliff collapses down to beyond 45 m depth. The rock is covered with a blanket of colorful sponges where animals as spectacular as the groupers, orange coral and deep shrimp live. It is also an ideal place to spot pelagics.
Crossing the veril towards the East, we can find a homage plaque and some ashes, following the wall we will arrive at a small boat where the huge grouper known as Felix usually wanders, from there we can climb back to Playa Chica.
