In Águilas you can definitely satisfy your thirst of adventure. There is a huge underwater region from Peñón de la Cueva de Los Lobos to Punta Parda. Plenty of diving zones protected by majestic cliffs and beautiful beaches, with every guarantee to avoid risks.
The configuration of the seaside of Águilas and the protection of crags and mountains of Sierra del Cantar, together with the temperature of the water, have turned Águilas into a perfect spot for diving enthusiasts. Check it for yourself! .
The feared easterly and northerly winds do not arrive here and the westerly wind barely affects this area.
