Scuba Diving in Tenerife
Dive Site: La Cueva Del Roquete
Location: La Cueva Del Roquete, Tenerife
Description: Reef / caves
Visibility: 30 metres (100 feet)
A mile or so north of the Carbonero, the caves at La Cueva Del Roquete are built on a smaller and more manageable scale. From the RIB you can see a grey seam of lava in the mostly red rocks of the cliffs rising hundreds of metres above. Below water the lava has cooled and solidified into a reef of billowing pillow lava that splurges across the sand, leaving deep undercuts, caves and arches. Morays, stingrays, octopus, barracudas, lobsters, seahorses and turtles are abound.
