Almuñécar is a different land, but so it is our sea. As we said in other posts, we are at a privileged geographical area. Thanks to our location, we have a unique climate in Europe, Subtropical Climate. This doesn´t only lead us to grow fruits more typical in Latin America than in Europe, but also our waters have very interesting animals and sea vegetables. At Victoria Playa Hotel, we welcome a lot of guests who are scuba-diving or snorkelling lovers, ¿what there will be under the sea?
Depending on the area you are, you will find one specie or another. Consider we have sandy and really rocky beaches, you notice this difference just when you go from a beach to another one. A very important spotlight between divers is “Punta de la Mona”. There, you can find endangered species, as “ferruginosa” limpet, as well as orange coral and Mediterranean conch. But there are two beautiful animal that attract most of people: Loggerhead Turtle and Bottlenose Delphin.
Another very well-known spot is the one called “el Tesorillo”, a home for “arto” bushes or hawthorn, catalogued as vulnerable. Besides, we have the so called“alga parda” inserted in the wild species in the Need of Special Protection List. At the rocks, you can also see “ferruginosas” and black limpets, as well as sea dates.
If you can’t do scuba-diving, in Almuñecar, we have several schools and clubs for amateur divers. Due to the quality of our waters, they work all over the year, so you have the guaranty that they are very professional and trained people. Almuñécar has diving teacher for all ages and levels. The only thing you need is the desire of learning.
Keeping in mind our waters biodiversity and that some of the species you can see are endangered or in a especial protection regime, it is important to be the most respectful with the environment you can be. Divers are just guests to their home, so you must take care of the sea above all.
As we said, at Victoria Playa Hotel, we host many divers who tell us their terrific experiences. Hotel Victoria Playa staff is always willing to listen to their sea adventures. We like supporting you with everything you need to have a good time and a good rest, ¿what about you? ¿Do you feel like telling us about your adventures?
