Best Dive Sites in Tenerife

Tenerife Diving Sites

Shore Dives

Boat Dives

Most of the dive sites in Tenerife are a mixture of unusual lava forms forming rock labyrinths and a wealth of Atlantic flora and fauna. Among the places that stand out, the Underwater Nature Reserve of Montana Amarilla, Las Eras, Abades, El Balito and of course, El Peñon, Tabaiba.

Beginners will usually feel more comfortable using dive sites that can be accessed from the beach. If you are on holiday with friends and family with non-divers, beach dives works best.
