Along the Algarve’s 150km of coastline, there’s amazing diving to be enjoyed, day or night. And with a fantastic climate throughout the year, it’s no surprise that the region seduces divers from all over the world.
In Pedra da Torre (Lagoa), descend 10 to 15 metres and rub shoulders with cuttlefish, crabs and a wealth of plant life.
Or take a fun dive exploring the overhangs of rock formations in Porto de Mós (Lagos). In the summer, you might even be lucky enough to come face to face with dolphins.
But the king of the Algarve’s dive spots is Pedra de Âncora, an enormous reef close to Praia da Rocha. You’ll see lobsters, sea bream and on the western edge of the reef, you’ll even spot an enormous anchor wedged fast between the rocks.
In Sagres meanwhile, check out the Vapor das 19, the wreck of a steam ship from the First World War. Lying at a depth of about 30 metres, it’s now home to a rich variety of sea-life.
