Some of the region's best dive sites can be found by the port of Águilas, set amidst majestic cliffs and beautiful Sandy beaches, these sites are well protected from the weather which means there is always a sheltered spot for diving.

The Region of Murcia also has plenty for novice divers to enjoy with La Azohia the perfect place for beginners to experience easy, enjoyable and safe diving. And La Azohia is also a renowned spot for whale watching – something that shouldn't be missed when visiting the region.
