Richies Place

Richies Place - the dive site with spectacular landscapes and seascapes. There are wonderful caverns, rocks and sand bars as well as arches and spectacular drop offs to delight and amaze you. There are nooks and crannies that house so much micro-life that you'll be mesmerized watching these little soap operas unfold in before your very own eyes.

It is also the dive site with amazing marine fauna and flora to observe such as the two orange corals, narval shrimps, starfish, damsel fish and groupers! Don't forget to look into the blue every now and again for the passing stingrays, you might even be lucky enough to spot a manta ray on its way past of an angel shark!

It was this rich diversity of both marine life and natural underwater architecture that originally attracted dive guide Richard, aka Richie, for whom the dive site is named after. Richie probably thought this place was the best dive site in Puerto Del Carmen, Lanzarote, and possibly the world! He has definitely helped to make this dive site one of the most popular in Puerto del Carmen. To the west end of the dive site there is a plaque in honour of Richie.
