Majorca: Scuba Diving Activity Holiday
Most Popular Spanish Mediterranean Island
Diving in Majorca is available all year round with some of the best diving sites in the south west due to the rocky nature of the seabed and the number of sea reserves in the area. Islands emerge from the sea providing fantastic wall dives that home plenty of marine life. There are also some great caves and caverns offering something different for all levels of diving skills. There are great wrecks to explore at Palma and a nature reserve in Dragonera so Santa Ponsa may be a good location to stay.
There are plenty of dive centres around the island but check before whether they have their own boat(s) as some dive centres in Majorca may just put you onto other centre’s boats and just act as the middleman. You may also want to check whether the dive centres offer any training and so diving centres in Majorca are likely to leave you to your own devices meaning you won’t get the most out of the experience if you relatively new to the sport.
Sea temperatures vary from 26 degrees Celsius in August to 13 degrees in January. Visibility in the summer can be up to 40 metres and marine life includes barracuda, octopus, goatfish, starfish, hard coral and soft coral amongst many others.
Diving in Majorca can be a fun family occasion as well as fun for the adults but be sure do to your research beforehand.
