Dive site Richies Place

Richies Place is a very popular area in Puerto del Carmen with advanced technical divers and is located some way out from the main Playa Grande beach. The location of the site means that it can only be reached by boat and so this makes it a less visited and more quiet dive site. 

The real feature of Richies Place is the formations that have been created by past lava flows. There are some very interesting sites with lava that resemble large mushrooms and a reef wall that look like a set of church organ pipes. All sorts of marine life can be encountered here, but the lava flows are the show stoppers.
