This island just off the coast in the east is famous for its turtles. It's visited only by hardy local divers due to strong currents, and it's a great spot for photography.

A V-shaped cliff with a sandy bottom houses lots of fish that don’t often see divers. It's named as such due to the presence of a religious building with arches, caves, and canyons. It's a seldom-dived but highly spoken-of dive site.

Caves and shipwrecks litter the site but require experienced divers. There are lots of fish and rays to see.

Kinder Island is a freighter of 140m that ran aground in 1991.

The Angela Pando is a 254m ship that went down in 1986.

Arona is spoken of as a highlight of diving in Gran Canaria, but it's mostly not dived. As a cargo ship, it has a swim-through hold, bow to stern with challenging entrances in the keel. There are lots of large shoals of fish, and it should be dived on Nitrox to get the best time.
