The dive possibilities around Benidorm Island are numerous and cater for all levels of training.
At Punta Garbí we can moor the dive vessel to a buoy that is directly above a platform that drops from 4m to 20m offering us a spectacular vertical drop off where we can catch sight of octopus and moray eels in the rock face as we descend.
The dive consists of following the wall, keeping it our right in a westerly direction and exploring the multitude of nooks and crannies home to the varied marine life. This wall has several big vertical cracks where grouper tend to find refuge. The roofs of the cracks are covered in yellow anenomies. Here we frequently encounter different types of nudibranch, a selection of sponges to add plenty of colours to our dive and shoals of damsel fish. The sea bed here has a depth of 28m and a sandy bottom where we occasionally encounter rays. As we follow an easterly course back to the boat we cover a sandy area that gradually reduces our depth bringing us to a rock platform that turns into a picturesque rock arch. This could be our return point but on this occasion on top of the platform until we reach our starting point where we can leisurely make our safety stop.
