Region of Murcia’s mild climate, famously transparent seas and year round water temperatures of 20˚ or more, make for perfect diving conditions. And, with so much ancient history on land, it’s little surprise to find the underwater spectacle’s equally enthralling. Experienced divers can expect to be mesmerised by Costa Cálida’s wreck-sites: well documented but still enough of a secret to be satisfyingly mysterious. There’s plenty to keep novices entertained on the seabed too and most resorts have excellent dive schools. Top dive sites include the marine reserves at Cabo de Palos- Islas Hormigas and Cabo Tiñoso.
