the wealth of its underwater world » Turismo Lanzarote

It’s in our DNA. We are water. Life emerged in the depths of the ocean millions of years ago and Lanzarote reminds us of this every second. Did you know that you are in the largest Marine Reserve in Europe? Take a deep breath and let’s dive in.

“Somewhere beyond the sea, somewhere waiting for me…” 🎶  Suena el clásico de Bobby Darin en el teléfono mientras nos ponemos los trajes de baño, dispuesto el grupo entero a sumergirse en todos los azules que perfilan los 250 kilómetros de costa que disfruta Lanzarote.   

The world dedicates two days of the year, June 5th and 8th, to celebrating the Environment and the Oceans. This ocean island celebrates them every day.


Magnet for scientists and marine explorers

In 1866 the naturalist Ernst Haeckel landed in the port of Arrecife and declared himself fascinated by the “animal soup” he found in the waters of Lanzarote. After a year of research, he left with the discovery of five hundred species that were rare or new to science under his belt. The study of the biodiversity of this marine environment has not ceased since then.

But why here? What do these waters have that others don’t? Ocean currents, the continental shelf of neighbouring Africa and submerged mountains such as the Banco de la Concepción influence the presence of a large upwelling of nutrients in our sea. That means life in abundance.


Margullar to explore marine biodiversity

We decided to margullar (swim underwater) and enjoy the spectacle at Playa Chica, Caleta de Caballo and the jetty at Punta Mujeres. Almost any cove on the island is a showcase of biodiversity. If, as well as having fun, you want to do some citizen science, you can report your sightings to the Canary Islands Government’s Promar Network. 



Very close to the shore of the beach we come across salema porgy, seabream and grey mullet. Around the rocks there are beautiful black Canary damsel, iridescent ornate wrasse, viejas (parrot fish) dressed in flaming red, camouflaged wide-eyed flounder on the sandy bottoms, sargassum and seaweed that look like a vedette’s feather boa… An endless variety of life within reach of those who can swim and wear a snorkelling mask.   

Special mention should be made of the Arrecife Marina, at the heart of the capital, which has one of the most valuable seabeds in the Canary Islands. The reason lies in its orography, a labyrinth of islets and shallows, and in its seagrass meadows, underwater pastures where marine species spawn. Children marvel at every low tide, when the waters recede and they can inspect the semi-submerged life that covers the shallows. Rock goby, yellow crab, sea snails, limpets and small invertebrates inhabit the pools. “Don’t touch it, leave it alone,” the adults tell them, giving lessons in environmental education on the beach.  


Cliffs, forests and giant groupers

Diving provides one of the most rewarding sensations that can be felt. A mixture of peace, weightlessness and harmony with the marine environment. The Lanzarote Diving Guide is a must-read to find out about the thirty most famous dives on the island (out of a total of seventy-five possible dives). Six of the world’s seven species of turtles, silvery swarms of shrimps and up to 259 species of fish swim in these waters.  

We go to a specialised centre that offers both diving baptisms and experiences for advanced divers. As the weather is fine, we decide to go to La Pared, a reef where you can see hanging gold coral, orange coral, huge groupers and trumpet fish. We left with the magical sensation of having discovered another island – a lush and submerged Lanzarote, very different from the beauty seen on land.

Lanzarote has forests and they are under the sea. They are very ancient and are formed by colonies of animals. Researchers from a project led by the Atlantic Biodiversity and Sustainability Association (ABAS for its name in Spanish) have spent the last few months educating students about the black coral forests in four of the island’s high schools. As the oceanographer Jacques Cousteau once said: to protect something you have to know it. 


The eastern coast, a sanctuary for cetaceans


Did you know that Puerto del Carmen is home to one of the most important angelshark breeding grounds in the world? Without this sea, this beautiful and peaceful endangered shark would be lost.  

In Lanzarote we also have the privilege and responsibility of enjoying the largest marine reserve in Europe, an oasis on which much of the balance of the marine ecosystem depends. If it were not for these waters, we would not be visited by thirty species of cetaceans, more than a third of those that exist worldwide: rough-toothed dolphins, eighteen-metre-long sperm whales, Risso’s dolphins, Cuvier’s beaked whales capable of diving to a depth of three thousand metres, killer whales that feed on tuna… The eastern coast of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura is one of the most important sanctuaries in Europe for these marine mammals and the setting of numerous research projects for the protection of cetaceans in the Canary Islands.   

It is essential to respect the habitat of marine animals and to never leave behind any rubbish that could pollute the sea and become a death trap for the animals. As we say here: “a little bit of respect is a lovely thing“. The oceans are the lungs of the planet. Enjoy them and protect them. 💙

“My partner and I decided to do the Sea Trek as we had seen it advertised through Thompson. From the very beginning the staff were fantastic. Very Professional and good at putting you at ease. Everything was explained clearly and precisely. You are provided with wet suits and appropriate footwear, then taken a short walk across to the bay. I was a little bit apprehensive when we first started to enter the water, but once the helmet was on and we were underwater all I can say is Amazing!!! If you ever go to Lanzarote this is a must do. Thank you to all the staff.”

“Sea Trek with Victor. We booked the Sea Trek for the four of us whilst staying in Costa Teguise. We booked it through our Tui rep as it was the same price as going independently. We were picked up from our hotel and dropped back even though it was only about a 15 minute walk. The instructors were great and I was a bit nervous but they put your mind at rest. It is quite expensive but a quirky thing to do. We saw lots of fish, a sea urchin and a sea cucumber. It was nice being able to purchase the video footage and pictures on a memory stick for 25 Euros. My husband and son went back the next day to snorkel in the bay and they let him have a snorkel and mask for free as he only wanted it for an hour.

Spanish miracle in the Canaries It is separated from the coast of Africa by about 125 km. The length of the island is about 60 km, and the width is only 15 km. Its total area is 845.9 sq. km, and it is the fourth largest of the Canary Islands. Of Lanzarote’s 213 kilometers of coastline, 10 kilometers are sandy beaches.

Lanzarote, like the rest of the islands of the Canary archipelago, is of volcanic origin. But here it is, perhaps, noticeably best of all, because on this small island there are 300 volcanoes at once. In 1730, 30 volcanoes erupted simultaneously on the island, and the eruption itself lasted six years. As a result of this grandiose eruption, almost a third of the territory of the entire island was filled with lava and covered with ash. Therefore, the plant and animal life on the island is still quite scarce. But this is more than compensated by the amazing beauty and unusual landscapes of the island.

1. Papagayo Beach, covered with unusual white and surprisingly clean sand, is one of the best beaches in the Canary Islands. It is located on the south coast of the island in Papagayo Bay. On all sides, the bay is protected by bare basalt cliffs, almost completely devoid of vegetation, which makes the landscape even more unusual. These huge cliffs divide the beach into many small sections. The area of ​​Papagai Beach has been declared a national park, so getting there is quite difficult.2. The former small fishing village of Puerto del Carmen. Today it is one of the main tourist centers of the island, capable of simultaneously receiving up to 30,000 guests. And at the same time, the city managed to preserve the traditional architectural style: there are shopping centers, restaurants, and nightclubs, but no high-rise buildings. In the picturesque harbor of the city, you can admire the fishing boats or go on a boat trip. The wonderful sandy beaches of Puerto del Carmen are also one of the main local attractions. 3. Timifaya National Park. Its landscape is completely shaped by volcanoes. The territory of this park (about 50 sq. km) is under the protection of UNESCO. Visitor access to this park is limited in order to preserve the fragile flora and fauna of this harsh and beautiful place. There are several hiking trails in the park and one route where you can ride camels. Tourists can also go on a bus tour.

Volcanic activity is felt everywhere here: the stones, which are only a few centimeters below the ground, are heated to a temperature of 100°C, and at a depth of 10 m the temperature reaches 600°C. Tour guides demonstrate this phenomenon to tourists by throwing dry branches into the pits, which flare up as soon as they touch the bottom of the pit. Water is also poured into cracks in the ground, which immediately boils and bursts to the surface, like a fountain of a geyser. And in the small restaurant El Diablo, built according to the project of Cesar Manrique, you can try local cuisine cooked with geothermal heat.

4. Puerto Calero, unlike Puerto del Carmen, is a very quiet and peaceful place, but there are clearly more signs of the usual “European civilization”. In the local port there are parking lots for private yachts, as well as the base of luxury catamarans Catlanza. Here, a yellow submarine awaits its guests, offering to dive for 45 minutes into the ocean depths and explore the underwater volcanic landscapes. The “land” cultural program includes a museum of marine mammals and an art gallery. Programs can be downloaded for free on the websites of travel companies.

5. The fishing village of Caleta de Famara is located on the northern coast of the island, where the Atlantic trade winds constantly raise high (up to 3 m) waves. The wind is also quite strong, its speed reaches 10 m/s. All this attracts many fans of surfing and kitesurfing here. For these sports, international competitions are held annually in Caleta de Famara. 6. Aira. This municipality is located in the northern part of the island in the province of Las Palmas. Aira is surrounded on all three sides by the Atlantic Ocean. In the western part of Aira, a mountain range rises. There are many viewing platforms in this area, which offer amazingly picturesque views. One of the most famous sites of Mirador del Rio always attracts many tourists. The northern part of the region remains uninhabited after the volcanic eruption that occurred 300 years ago. 7. One of the unique attractions of Lanzarote is the cactus garden. Here on the territory of 5000 sq.m. more than 1000 different types of beautiful cacti have been planted. This garden was created by Cesar Manrique in the crater of an extinct volcano. One of the decorations of the park, an old windmill, is still functioning and producing flour from roasted corn. Once this product (gofio) was the main food of the inhabitants of the island. 8. Cuevas de los Verdes (or “Green Cave”) – This is actually a lava tube. The upper layers of lava cool faster and solidify. When, after the end of the eruption, the inner, red-hot, part of the lava flows down, then such a special tubular cave is formed. The Cuevas de los Verdes cave was formed about 3,000 years ago. This lava tunnel has a length of 6 km and is one of the longest on our planet. 9. Jameo del Agua is a beautiful landscape ensemble created by Cesar Manrique based on the failures of the arches of the Cuevas de los Verdes cave. Several auditoriums with excellent acoustics are equipped in the lava tube, and white cave crabs live in a unique salt lake. This place is so beautiful that Hollywood actress Rita Hayworth called it the eighth wonder of the world. 10. One of the most beautiful Spanish villages of Yaza in the 18th century almost died under hot lava flows. But what happened can be called almost a miracle: the lava flow split into two branches and bypassed the village.

Diving with unusual marine life

There are many wonderful things that attract us to diving. Freedom and a feeling of weightlessness, camaraderie, and for some, love for the history of shipwrecks. Also one of the aspects of diving that most divers have in common is the passion for the underwater world. We just love discovering extraordinary marine life. The seas and oceans of our blue planet are full of wondrous animals, from the majestic to the bizarre and otherworldly. Rays, manta rays, whale sharks and other iconic megafauna often top divers’ bucket lists, but beyond these magnificent creatures, there are other equally impressive creatures in our oceans.

Here we take a look at some of the most adorable creatures you can see while diving.

Leafy sea dragon

It’s hard not to fall into hypnosis when watching a seahorse. Using ornate leaf-like outgrowths for perfect camouflage, they can disappear right before your eyes. They are the largest of all types of seahorses (up to 25 cm). In these animals, like in most members of their family, males bear offspring! However, when they are ready to mate, their tails turn bright yellow. These mysterious, beautiful creatures live only in the waters of southern Australia.


These fish can walk on the bottom, are masters of disguise and catch their prey with a “fishing rod”. No wonder the frogfish is a favorite among divers. The family consists of over 50 species found in tropical and subtropical waters throughout the world. Divers can find them in Bonaire, the Dominican Republic, Indonesia and the Philippines.

Flamingo tongue snail

This tiny mollusk (size 2-5 cm) with an exotic pattern is painted not on the shell, but on the mantle – the thinnest layer of soft tissue that covers it. And since the animal feeds on corals (“the mouth” is their foot, like their many relatives), then the color of the mollusk becomes corresponding to what it crawls on. Great defense mechanism! They can be seen in the waters of Mexico and the Caribbean. They say that if you see a Flamingo tongue snail, you are fabulously lucky.

Mimic Indonesian octopus (Mimic octopus)

The list of unusual marine life would be incomplete without mentioning the remarkable octopus – a master of mimicry. As the name suggests, this highly intelligent cephalopod is an excellent mimic of all kinds of other marine life, including jellyfish, lionfish and sea snakes. Beginning photographers love them. It is best to observe these beauties in Indonesia and the Philippines.

Mola mola

There are hardly any other sea creatures so mesmerizing as the mysterious ocean sunfish (aka Moonfish or Mola Mola). This is the largest bony fish in the world, it reaches a size of up to 4 m and a weight of up to 2 tons. In addition, it holds another record. Mola Mola is the most prolific of the fish. One female spawns up to 300 million eggs. These fish owe their bizarre shape to their dorsal fin, which bends to form a rudder-like appendage called the clavus. Despite its impressive size, the moonfish is simply elusive! Head to the waters off the coast of Bali between July and September for your best chance of adding mola mola to your bucket list.


It’s not always necessary to travel to the ends of the earth to see incredible marine life. This monster of the deep is sometimes called the sea devil, and it’s easy to see why. As a rule, these fish spend their lives at depth, but they can be seen in the spring in the waters of the Azores and Lanzarote at depths accessible for diving. However, don’t get too close!

Spanish dancer

Dance all evening diving with this beautiful floating nudibranch. The Spanish dancer, up to 40 centimeters long, swims through shallow waters with the elegance and rhythm of a flamenco dancer. They are usually seen at night on the reefs of the Red Sea and throughout the Indo-Pacific region.

American saltwater crocodile

Admittedly an extraordinary sight, though not for the faint of heart. Head to the magical Jardines de la Reina in southern Cuba – one of the most well-managed marine parks in the world – to dive among the best coral reefs in the Caribbean, encounter numerous shark species and snorkel with American saltwater crocodiles on the surface. These creatures are surprisingly peaceful, but snorkeling is at your own risk!

Flamboyant cuttlefish

Often some of the most fascinating marine life is found away from busy, vibrant coral reefs. Dive over the black sands of the Lembeh Strait and you may encounter this colorful and exotic member of the cuttlefish family. The bright colors of cuttlefish are not their only trick, they are also nature’s only poisonous cuttlefish.

Pearl string (String of pearls)

Just after the full moon in the Caribbean Sea, at nightfall, a magical event occurs. Turn off your flashlight during a night dive and the water will start to shimmer and shine like a hundred tiny stars. This incredible show is a mating ritual of tiny ostracods, crustaceans a few millimeters long. The males release a string of bioluminescence to attract females, who follow this string of pearls to find their mate, waiting patiently at the end. Head to Bonaire or Roatan to see this wonderful sight.

Atlantic Museum – underwater sculptures of the island of Lanzarote (Canaries)

The first and so far the only European underwater museum (or museum of underwater figures) called Atlantic (in the original Museo Atlantico) is an amazing sight. The exposition exhibited at the bottom of the ocean, on the one hand, can frighten, on the other, delight, and on the third, amaze. But it certainly won’t leave anyone indifferent.
Hundreds of concrete human figures rest in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, attracting tourists and marine life.

Where is the Museum of Underwater Sculptures

The Atlantic Museum is located off the southern coast of Lanzarote in the Canaries (Spain).

Geographic coordinates 28.856277, -13.812821

Sculptures are located on the ocean floor at a depth of 12 to 15 meters in the Playa Blanca resort area.
The total area of ​​the territory where the statues are located is about 2500 m 2 .

A little about the author and why he did it

The ideological inspirer and creator of the Atlantic Underwater Museum is British artist Jason de Caires Taylor (born in 1974). This is a rather interesting person with a great outlook and boundless love for the sea. Jason is not only a sculptor, but also a diver. He is well aware that a person, as a rule, causes irreparable harm to the environment, and for his part, he tries to benefit both tourists and nature.

For her statues, Taylor uses a special type of inert marine cement designed to last hundreds of years. He avoids the use of metals because they are prone to corrosion and pollute the environment.

Jason’s underwater sculptures serve several purposes.

  • First: underwater statues attract the attention of tourists
  • Second, underwater sculptures attract marine life and promote the growth of animal and plant life, symbolizing the symbiosis of man and nature. Many representatives of marine flora and fauna show interest in such underwater objects. As a diver, Taylor knows that if you place any object under water, it will very quickly be taken over by corals and small fish. Taylor’s team chooses the most barren and deserted places to install sculptures
  • Third: Jason tries to distract tourists with his installations from the fragile ecosystem of the nearby coral reefs.

You probably know Jason de Caires Taylor as the creator of the famous MUSA Underwater Museum in Cancun off the coast of Mexico.

In Lanzarote, he used the same technology as in Cancun. The aim of these ambitious projects is to achieve positive interaction between people and the underwater world.
According to Jason’s team, submerged sculptures increase over 200% the amount of marine life in the area.

To see the amazing underwater world in its natural environment, head to the amazing Palau archipelago.

Main installations of the underwater museum

In total, the museum has 300 life-size sculptures. They are combined into art exhibitions illustrating the many issues of humanity.

The Boatmen (Los Jolateros)

The composition depicts a group of children in brass boats called “jolateros”. This is a kind of metaphor for the possible future of our children and how difficult it is to sail through life on a fragile and unstable boat.


The sculpture consists of concrete sticks and is a traditional funeral pyre. The prototype was a local fisherman from the island of La Graciosa, on the northern coast of Lanzarote.

The Raft of Lampedusa

This installation seeks to show the tragedy and hope of refugees from Africa who began to arrive in Europe en masse on old unreliable boats.


A couple taking a selfie makes us think about using new technologies and encourages us to look inside ourselves. The sculpture symbolizes the modern addiction to social networks and the pursuit of likes.

Crossing The Rubicon

Large-scale composition of 35 human figures walking towards the entrance to the underwater wall. This is a kind of border between realities and a point of no return. Perhaps this is a symbolic entrance to the Atlantic Ocean. The wall stretches for 30 meters in length and 4 meters in height. It has only one rectangular doorway. The wall is a monument to the absurd, an unnecessary barrier that can be bypassed from any direction.

This sculptural composition tells us that in reality there are no boundaries in the world, all boundaries are just a convention. Humanity has no right to separate oceans, atmosphere and wildlife. We often forget that we are all an integral part of the planet’s living system and are responsible for the environment.

Hybrid Garden

These sculptures represent the fusion of nature and man. Look closely, the statues are half human, half cacti.

The Portal

Here you will see a hybrid animal-human sculpture that looks into a large square mirror, symbolizing the moving surface of the ocean. The composition depicts water in water. It’s like a portal to another world.

Swing (Deregulated)

In fact, deregulated means deregulated, but, in our subjective opinion, it would be more logical to call this installation “Swing”.

It looks like an ordinary children’s swing, on which respectable guys sit. The composition demonstrates the madness and arrogance of the money world in relation to nature.


Everything is more prosaic here, these are ordinary photographers who are symbols of the modern world of new technologies.

The Human Gyre

Perhaps the most impressive and controversial exhibit in the Atlantic Museum is the “human cycle”. Here, more than 200 human figures are piled into a circle, creating a surreal swirl of human bodies.
Here we see people of all ages and from all walks of life.

In addition to providing a habitat for marine life, this intricate art installation reminds us that we all evolved from the marine world and are therefore subject to the movements and will of the ocean.

And here is the layout of the sculptures of the Atlantic Underwater Museum

It is best to view the entire exposition of the Atlantic Underwater Museum using scuba gear.
