Playa Chica is a wall that can offer endless different dives.  We could name it The Perfect Dive Site

It is a shore dive, a good one. In Lanzarote they are very Diver’s friendly, and you’ll notice it when arriving to Playa Chica.  There is a sand free parking for dive centres, showers, toiletes and a beautiful bar near the sea where to spend your surface interval with a cofee or a tea (you are allowed in there with your neoprene). And there is a magic beautiful diving enviroment all around. Besides, the exit and the entrance to the water are very easy through a very confortable stairway.

Incredibly, this shore dive offers such a wide range of opportunities for divers that we could say very few people has doved all Playa Chica. From DSD to Technical diving, everybody has a plave to go in Playa Chica. A dive that starts at 5m and finishes as deep as you want to go.

An amazing landscape  dominated by white sand, this dive reminds us to the beautiful Cozumel. With its hills of sands and huge rock formations that arise from the bottom creating walls and swimthrouhs.

Here you’ll find some very interesting caverns and swim throughs, little wrecks and even what wehumbly  call a blue hole. You’ll be able to spot the typical fauna of the Canary Islands. Angel Sharks, 25 different speces of Rays, Moray Eels, Big Groupers, Barracudas, Lobsters, Crabs, Nudibranches, Puffer Fishes, Octopuses, Flaunders,  Cuttlefishes, Sea Horses, and many more fish.  When lucky you could spot Blue Sharks, Devil Rays, Mola Molas or even Mantarays.

Some of the most common divesites are Cueva de las Gambas, La Catedral o the Blue Hole
