CUEVAS DEL ELEFANTE
Located between Altea and Benidorm, it is an underwater cave known as the Elephant Cave, due to the rock formation over the entrance. The entrance of the cave is 12 meters deep in crystal clear waters, once you reach the end of the cave you can see good examples of stalactites inside the chamber. The cave itself is 25 meters long.
The exterior of the cave is mostly sandy, providing a safe platform for practicing diving skills.
CUEVA DEL ENANITO
It is a shallow dive with a maximum of -14 meters and an average of about -8 meters, but it takes place in a particularly exciting circuit through the beautiful caves and chimneys that, like authentic windows to the blue, will continually amaze us.
As soon as we descend we look for the wall and there the entrance at -8mts. to the cave of the Enanito, with a considerable cover but little interior route. After accessing it we can ascend to the surface where there is an air bubble. We descend again just a couple of meters to see an illuminated tunnel that indicates the exit through a window just above the entrance. Once in the open sea, the route consists of leaving the wall on the left, which is profusely upholstered with yellow encrusting anemone. This wall sometimes forms bends to the left, although if we follow the stones that with more or less continuity continue parallel to it, on a course of about 60º, we will arrive at some cyclopedal stones piled up that we can scrutinize and then take a 330º course to the wall. , where after being forced to circumvent one of these huge rocks and briefly ascend to only -3mts, we fall again to -10mts and access the Elephant Cave, which is introduced inside the mountain and allows us to reach the surface where it also there is an air bubble. Finally we descend and go out to the open sea and return to the starting point, now leaving the wall to our right.
