The seabed of La Restinga

The Marine Reserve of La Restinga in El Hierro is an internationally-acclaimed diving sanctuary frequented every year by numerous animal species, such as turtles, tunas, thornback rays, stingrays, groupers, dolphins, barracudas... and the occasional peaceful whale shark.

The volcanic eruption that took place in 2011 led to a regeneration of the sea bed, giving rise to a very particular biodiversity and a unique underwater landscape that is full of life, perfect for practising all varieties of diving.
