This was my very first location to dive from and i was amazed at how clear the water was.
Visibility varied depending on whether the wind direction. When conditions were good you had about 15 metres or more.

Location :
At Casa Marina Aqua Centre (Casa Marina Reef/Beach Hotel) and has beach and rib entry capabilities.
Found the diving to be mind blowing as i completed my open water off Babbacombe, South Coast, England.
There were numerous dive sites of various depths to suit all skill levels including a couple of wrecks.

I wasn't very good at spotting the different inhabitants but did see Stingray,Scorpion Fish,Yellow Tail Snapper,Sea Horses and Jelly Fish(without tentacles) at depth.

Coral Gardens: 54ft Plenty of sealife
Larimar 1: 54ft Much the same 25 degrees C at bottom
Lazingara: 100ft+ Wreck of a fishing trawler, Loads of Jelly fish!
The Gardens: Organised from Sosua Beach 25ft Plenty of plantlife

Also did 3 Rocks,Point Reef and Larimar 2.

General information: Weather does tend to dictate as to whether you can dive or not. Beach entry becomes impossible if there are strong winds, but staff are excellent and will advise. They do also arrange dives by rib form nearby Sosua Beach.

Hope this helps

Have fun and Dive safe
