Villa Blanca Shallows

This is a great beach dive, day or night, accessible in front of Villa Blanca Hotel. The prefered area to dive is to the South of the piers. The gentle sloping entry makes this a great dive for beginners and the sunlight in the shallows along with the abundant coral and reef fish also makes this an excellent photographer’s dive. Many of the elusive, spotted golden-tail eels call these coral heads home along with a green moray, squirrel fish and lots of sea fans.
