The island’s main attractions are sea and beach activities, such as sport fishing and water sports, and an image of peace and contact with nature.


Underwater fishing and scuba diving

Underwater fishing and scuba diving are two of the appealing tourism options in the municipality of La Oliva. Under the surface of the sea off its coastline you will find a marvellous variety of aquatic life, especially in the triangle formed by Corralejo, Los Lobos Islet and Las Dunas, and at no more than 17 metres deep. There you can observe a variety of species: the flight-like movements of the stingray, the colourful beauty of the vieja fish, the swiftness of the barracuda, the balled-up shape of the jurels, gilthead sea breams and sargos, the tame swimming of the grouper, the curiosity of the kinglet, the winding movements of the moray eel and the gluttonous comber.



The surf, windsurf, kite surf and sailing

Its steady breezes make La Oliva a special place for going sailing, surfing, and windsurfing, and it attracts a large number of windsurfers from all corners of the world. Excellent areas for this activity are the beaches of Lobos, El Cotillo, Majanicho, Esquinzo, El Hierro, La Punta (El Muelle), El Burro, La Tiñosa, Punta Elena, etc.
