About this book

Dive Guide of the Algarve gives a schematic presentation of the main diving sites of the Algarve. The author hopes it will contribute to promote diving in the region, enabling divers who visit to enjoy the underwater landscape, fauna and flora of the Algarve Coast in a responsible and safe way. Dive Guide of the Algarve is designed to be updated regularly, through the insertion or replacement of pages with new diving sites, in future editions.

This first edition describes 50 diving sites all along the Algarve Coast, starting at Cape Saint Vincent and going to the border with Spain. The sites are grouped into three zones: Barlavento, Centre, and Sotavento. There are, without doubt, many other areas of interest that could also be described, and which deserve to be included in this first edition. As these are identified and investigated, they will certainly be included in Dive Guide of the Algarve in the near future.

Each diving site is described in the form of a data sheet, which has four main sections. The first section gives the location, indicated by the international diving flag on the map of the region. The second gives a brief text describing the diving site and highlighting its main characteristics. The third section gives a drawing of the area, showing either a lateral or vertical view, sometimes illustrated with photographs. Finally, the last section gives a small table with technical data and recommendations on the diving site.
