The possibilities Caleta de Fuste offers in a blue, peaceful waters filled with life sea are endless. There´s pedal boats, jet-skis, paddlesurf, windsurf, catamarans, and submarine rides. However, plunging into the depths of the sea to discover its hidden treasures by scuba diving on this coast is probably one of the best options, and Caleta de Fuste is the best place for it. Here’s why.
The underwater landscape of Fuerteventura is as amazing as on land. The Canary Islands are a volcanic area, which were formed by consecutive eruptions over millions of years This has created a marine landscape packed with caves, waterfalls, caverns and reefs that harbor an enormous, submerged world where around 400 marine species live happily. Among them there are angel sharks, groupers, white seabreams, tunas, Mediterranean parrotfish, dolphins, island groupers, red porgy, octopuses, turtles, Moray eels, and manta rays.
The weather conditions make it possible for you to plunge into the ocean all year round. The average temperature is around 22° and the sea temperature around 20°, perfect conditions to dive at any time without worrying about the cold.
Caleta de Fuste in particular has turned into a spot that is highly appreciated by divers, not just the experienced ones, who come back whenever possible, but also those that sample the experience for the first time.
It is far from overcrowded, which means no people during your underwater stroll, only happy marine species and yourself.
On this side of the coast, the sea is especially protected from the wind and the waves, and its clear and crystalline water offers great visibility of up to 30 meters, and the immersions are carried out near the shore without the need for long journeys, making the diving sessions very accessible and comfortable.
The underwater landscape of the area is a dream thanks to, among other things, the Las Salinas reef, south of Caleta de Fuste. The variety of species that, without a doubt, you will find during a swim along the bottom of the sea has great appeal. It has an important concentration of some of the biggest species. There are a high number of angel sharks, a shark species in danger of extinction which is very abundant in this area, along with rays, manta rays, barracudas or the charming groupers that hang around here to greet our visitors.
In Caleta de Fuste, the Deep Blue Diving Fuerteventura School is the diving school for this part of the island and is valued for a professionalism that has been recognized with several prizes and awards. The experienced divers repeat the experience time and again, but if you have never tried it, you are also in the best place to start, thanks to the protected area of the sea that the school has as a pool so you can get to grips with the basics during your diving baptism, the name given to the first time, and is pleasant and safe.
