The Mediterranean's calm, clear waters are ideally suited for diving and snorkelling enthusiasts on holiday in Mallorca. The best season for diving in Mallorca is between June and October, when the weather is balmy and visibility can be as much as 130 feet (40m).
Although not blessed with spectacular coral reefs, there is much to admire in the depths surrounding Mallorca's coastline. The warm water is home to a huge array of fish and other sea life, including European barracuda, eels, rainbow wrasse, ornate wrasse, goatfish, cardinal fish, damsel fish, octopus, sea slugs, squid, crabs and lobsters - to name but a few of the myriad species that tourists can expect to spot.
Many of Mallorca's resorts offer snorkelling and diving equipment for hire, and a few of them have on-site dive schools where tourists can have training and obtain diving licenses. Some of the best resorts for snorkelling and diving in Mallorca include Cala Millor, the isolated beaches of Cala Morlanda and Cala Varques (both brilliant for snorkelling), Puerto Pollensa and Santa Ponsa, which is the best resort for scuba divers in Mallorca, allowing access to many dive sites, including very popular wreck diving opportunities.
