Artificial reef

The reef was a project by the department Marine Biology of the University of Las Palmas. The idea was to create a refuge for species endangered by intensive fishing. They put different kinds of shapes on the ground wanting to see which shape attracted which kinds of fish. As a result the concrete blocks became a real aquarium at a 20-22 meter of depth. The project finished in 1994 and it is now a popular dive site. There is a variety of species to be found here and the sandy bottom is one of the best places to spot angel sharks. Artificial reef also harbours a big shoal of roncadores, moray eels, octopus and often rays. Once in a while we even spot a green turtle on artificial reef, so join us and try your (and our) luck!
