Diving in the Balearic Islands

It would be a shame to chalk up the Balearic Islands to just Ibiza and its party nights… First of all, for scuba diving enthusiasts, the action is underwater! Palma, Majorca, Minorca, Cabrera, Formentera, and Ibiza: scuba diving in the Balearic Islands is generally done under only the best conditions. The visibility is often very good especially in the summer where it can reach 30, or even 50 meters on certain sites on the Island of Cabrera. The water temperature is not too cold, and more importantly, there is a multitude of things to discover. Whether it’s caves, cracks, or reefs, the scenery is just gorgeous. The site of Cava is definitely worth the trouble! This beautiful limestone cave is home to a stunning inner lake populated by all sorts of fish. The Sec de la Bota also has its fair share of fans. This real underwater mountain off the coast not only has a unique topography, but is also a crossroads for pelagic specimens…

Diving in the Balearic Islands means also rubbing shoulders with an amazing abundance of flora and fauna. Posidonia oceanica, or seagrass, is very present here and even listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Moray eels, European congers, forkbeards, groupers, barracudas, brown meagre, tuna, nudibranchs—from the very tiny to the very big, the diversity is within reach of your fins and camera. As an aside, many underwater photo festivals are regularly held… Finally, almost every Balearic Island has many dive centers that will be happy to show you the wonders of their “secret” sites…

You will soon understand that this little Mediterranean archipelago is an ideal destination for your diving summers!
