Sea bed of La Restinga
The Mar de Las Calmas Marine Reserve in La Restinga is a sanctuary visited every year by turtles, tunas, rays, groupers, dolphins... and, with a little luck, the occasional peaceful whale shark. The 2011 eruption led to an explosion of life that not only allowed the total regeneration of the sea bed but the creation of new underwater scenery and ecosystems.
The spectacular sea bed of El Hierro
The crystal-clear waters of La Restinga and the Mar de Las Calmas allow you to enjoy beautiful underwater scenery full of life. Of great geological value and richness, the sea bed of El Hierro is a reference point in Europe and a paradise for any diving enthusiast.
Water temperature usually ranges between 18º C and 25º C all year round, which attracts tropical and Mediterranean species that live together in this sea. The dense vegetation covering the rocky bed makes the island an ideal refuge for a large variety of flora and fauna and, occasionally, a transit zone for deep-sea animals.
