Diving in the Balearic Islands

Explore diving in the Balearic Islands

There are some 80 different dive sites around the Balearic Islands and divers can choose to dive from Majorca, Menorca, Ibiza or Formentera. The dive sites around the Balearic Islands are dramatic to see. There are several shipwrecks lying in crystal clear waters, beautiful caves and caverns to explore as well as great boulders and limestone cliffs.

Off Majorca and Menorca, the caves are especially spectacular as they have air pockets to surface in and stalactite and stalagmite formations. Some wreck dives are quite deep and technical certifications are needed.

At Ibiza, there are also tunnels, caverns, caves and vertical walls. Dives often take place at a small island called Isla Tagomago.
