Snorkelling and diving

Mallorca offers a range of different experiences and sensations that can only be felt underwater. The marine life here is one of the main attractions of the island. And there are two ways to get to know it. One of the options requires some training and equipment, while the other is more accessible and can be enjoyed by people of all fitness levels.

The first option is diving and it is the only way to discover Mallorca’s sunken ships and underwater caves. Visit the Delta area to discover the rocky sea floor at maximum depths of 18 metres. Ut’s a wonderful area to dive thanks to the clarity of the water and its accessibility.

Opposite the Bay of Palma you will find the Dic de l’Oest dive, which reaches a depth of between 20 and 28 metres and hides a number of sunken ships. The 4 boats located here have been on the sea floor since the 70s and have attracted the attention of many curious and intrepid divers.

Another option is snorkelling. Not considered a sport as such, snorkelling allows you to discover the marine floor from the surface with just a mask and flippers. Practically all the island’s coves are good snorkelling spots, but those that are particularly isolated from tourism are most highly recommended. Basset, Port des Canonge and Cala d’Estellencs are good examples.
