Less than 2 miles from the port is the island of Benidorm, a true symbol of this coastline and the subject of mythical legends about its genesis. For us it is simply a small paradise in which to enjoy the extraordinary and surprising seabed, with plenty of marine life and with privileged views of the vigorous urban profile of Benidorm.
The recommended route for our snorkelling trip is the one that takes us following the profile of the island towards the south, that is, leaving the wall to our left, until we reach an attractive stone arch that, like a window to the blue, invites us to cross it, which we can do easily as it is no more than -2m deep.
Along the way, we will see that the bottom is a smooth rocky slope only occasionally dotted with the occasional rock, and that a little further out it gains depth as larger and larger stones appear, some of which are used to tie up the lines to which the surface buoys are attached.
The rocky platform hides numerous cracks and crevices that are home to small crustaceans and fish such as gobies, and where the holes are larger, perhaps an octopus is hiding behind its peculiar barricade of stones and shells.
The castanets are very abundant and weave curtains in incessant movement while, at greater depths, it is the clouds of bream and obladas that dominate, with the occasional fleeting appearance of sea bream and the odd gilthead bream.
After reaching the height of the arch we can start our return journey while we continue entertaining ourselves with the observation of the thousand motifs of interest that mark out this luminous route.
Enjoy the marine fauna of the Benidorm Island Natural Park and come with us for snorkelling or scuba diving. We give you everything you need. Always the boat next to the divers and suitable for all ages.
