Marbella: Scuba Diving
Costa's Honey Pot of Glamour and Wealth
With calm, clear semi-tropical waters surrounding Marbella, the Spanish city is the ideal location for residents or holiday makers to explore what lies beneath the ocean waves. There are plenty of dive sites situated off the Marbella beaches ranging from an 18th century French Galleon (known as the Barco Antiguo or Old Boat), to La Torre, an old concrete cargo loading tower, which is a landmark and the most visited dive site on the Costa del Sol. Marbella is also fortunate to have its own purpose built dive centre for beginners or those who want to complete their internationally-recognised PADI licence.
The warm Mediterranean makes Marbella an ideal location to scuba dive throughout the year. Marbella boasts its own purpose built scuba diving centre for visitors who want to take to the sport for the first time or complete their internationally-recognised PADI licence. Around Marbella itself, there are numerous dive sites ranging from a wreck of an 18th century galleon to a disused concrete tower.
