Dive in and Enjoy the Marine Life

For diving fans, we recommend renting a speed boat in Marbella.

You can also see the statue of the "Queen of the Seas", the Virgen del Carmen. The other fantastic diving site you should visit is El Pimpollo since it's only a few nautical miles south of Marbella's famous Golden Mile. Inside the Puerto Banus is a large horseshoe-shaped reef with small caves at the North. Here you will find plenty of incredible species of marine life.
