Risco verde

Risco verde is close to the marine park of el cabron, and is located in the town of arinaga. It’s an easy dive site, ideal for your first open water dives, or just for a fun dive. You can split the dive site risco verde up in 2 completely different dives. One is based on a wall dive where you can find a lot of morays and barracuda. This is the deeper end of the dive, and this wall continues endlessly. There is even a part of a wreck you can see on the way. This is also the home to a huge ray. The other side is more a sandy bottom with rocks where you can find smaller things, but also octopus and cuttlefish. When it’s the season of the angel sharks we can often find them in this area as well.


After the dive we recommend to go and have lunch at hornos de la cal. This is one of the best restaurants of the island and located right next to the water, and the dive site.
