A tropical immersion
Waikiki map
The exotic name of this dive site captivates you instantly.
When we go deeper into the water amongst the dense rocks
at just a few meters deep, the play of light from the sun and
the reflection off the white sand gives this place a truly
tropical flavor. The dive could be done in this area alone,
but in reality this spot is reserved for the security stop or for
snorkeling because the site has much more to offer us if we
go down to the cliff.

The dive begins from the anchoring line along the line of
buoys that mark off the swimming area. It descends leaving
to one side the border of large rocks that extends out towards
the coast and, on the other side, a sand slope that goes down
to the drop off. We go down the sand to the cliff, following
one of the two rock crests depending on the current, which
can be strong in this area, and our own preference. At the
end of the crest more to the east, at a depth of 18 m under a
ledge, grows one of the shallowest branches of orange coral
in the Canaries. In the deepest part of the cliff (at about 28
m), to the east, we will find a small cave with a large size
hanging encrusting anemone accompanied by fairy basslet
