One of the most important attractions of the Region of Valencia is its long coast, with almost 600 kilometres of coastline bathed by the Mediterranean Sea and three Marine Reserves, where you can discover incredible underwater landscapes and amazing marine biodiversity with a snorkel and mask.

Bou Ferrer, el pecio romano más grande del Mediterráneo

The Bou Ferrer Wreck is a Roman shipwreck of the 1st c. CE found at a depth of approximately 25 meters and is located nearly 1000 meters from the coast, in front of the beaches of Villajoyosa (Alicante). The ship was likely en route from southern Spain to Italy when it was struck by a squall, whereupon it tried to find refuge on shore, but sank before it could reach shelter.

Recomendaciones para un buceo sostenible y respetuoso con el medio
  • When accessing diving areas from the coast, passing through natural habitats, plants and animals must be respected, no matter how insignificant they might seem.

  • Rubbish or waste must not be thrown on the ground or left behind.

  • When accessing by boat or other craft, avoid pouring oil or fuel into the sea, as well as dumping other waste (empty containers, packets, cigarette stubs...).
