Gran Canaria Dive Sites - Almud Reef

Dive sites > South Gran Canaria > Almud Reef

A great dive which has it all, large sandy patches where rays and angel shark can be spotted, a plateau of volcanic rock which sits about 1.5 meters on the sand and has an overhang that protects many inhabitants such as moray eels, Canarian lobster and on occasions large porcupine puffer fish.

This plateau covers a large area with many holes and cracks providing sanctuary to a multitude of tiny marine life. And as a bonus: a small wreck called “Armando Theodoro” sunk some years ago to enhance the reef, providing shelter to rays and file fish.

Depending on current and air we sometimes continue eastward from the wreck where the topography changes and strange pinnacles and smooth overhangs are the result of the lava flows hitting the ocean and cooling to these beautiful shapes.
