La Palma, also the blue island
La Palma, the most beautiful Canary Island (it is also called La Isla Bonita) and the greenest Canary Island (La Isla Verde), has a surprisingly beautiful and special underwater world. The deep blue color of the Atlantic, interspersed with jagged rock formations, basalt formations and lava rock make La Palma a unique diving area.
Colourful underwater world
But the underwater life can also be described as exuberant. Almost always there is a lot of underwater life around La Palma. From small neon coloured fish to big barracudas. But also many sepias and special rays. At a greater depth (> 30 meters) you can find the black coral, which is all but black. Often it has a deep red, brown color. And we often see manta rays and whale sharks.
