At a depth of 8 metres off the beach of La Herradura Playa is Damsel's Wreck. It is a small fishing boat that sunk a few months ago. Marine life has established on the wreck mostly the humble Damselfish. It isn't a super amazing wreck but it is the second discovered wreck inside La Herradura bay. If you go off of La Herradura Playa on the Western side of the bay, follow the rocky outcrop until you pass these three ma made objects protruding from the seabed. 1. An upside down inboard engine. 2. A car Tyre laying flat 3. A large chain draped over the sea floor and a large rock. If you have passed these three things then you will be very close to Damsel's Wreck. Continue along the rocky reef's edge until you find the wreck of a small fishing boat. This is Damsel's Wreck. Damsel's Wreck is also known as Juani Y David Wreck.

The Tower Marbella

Spain, Costa del Sol, Marbella

The Tower is what is left of an old cable car system that brought iron ore from a mine in the mountains to waiting barges off shore. The rock and concrete piling is still in tact with many holes for eels and various fish to live in. There is also the remains of the crane arm sunk in about 30 feet of water. A short distance away is a sunken barge that presumable was used to transport the ore. We saw Moray and Conger Eels, several octopus, Wrasses, and Scorpionfish along with many typical Mediterranean fish. Overall, this was an interesting site with vis as the primary challenge. Bring a compass. 5 min by boat from Porto Marbella. Could potentially dive this site from the shore from the beach allong N-340 or A-7. The site is about 300 yards off shore and the surf was not overly strong. The Tower Marbella is also known as Tower.

Sandy bottom where the remains of the wreck, then you can see the nearby wall and there you see a good number of fish and marine life. The wreck was a trawling ship, the currents that have been only the frames. The Candelabra is in the Natural Park of Maro Cerro Gordo, you need permission to dive on the site. The boat out of Marina del Este. The remains of the wreck are poor but you can visit and then go to the wall nearby.
