Near Playa del Ingles on Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands, the snorkeling at Playa de Aguila is popular due to the rocky seafloor, even though the visibility is occasionally poor. Make sure to only attempt on calm and windless mornings for best snorkeling.

Since the Canary Islands are actually part of Spain, the best way to fly to the islands is through an airport in Spain. There are flights to all of the main Canary Islands directly from one Spanish airport or another. Of course, Madrid offers the best connections. The Aeropuerto de Gran Canaria (LPA) is located southeast of Telde on the east coast of Gran Canaria. Presently, there are not direct flights from the USA to the Canary Islands. Once in the Canary Islands, the best way to go between islands is still by inter-island flights. There are some boat services that do go between the islands as well. TIP: For your safety, most of the Canary Island snorkeling dive sites require snorkelers to have a diver-down flag marker. The waters around the islands are very popular with windsurfers and boaters, which has resulted in some snorkeler deaths over the past few years.

Overall, Playa De Aguila is the 7th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 39 snorkeling dives in Canary Islands. Several of the better snorkeling spots are nearby Playa De Aguila including Playa Arinaga , Playa Maspalomas, Playa Meloneras, Playa De Amadores, Playa De Tauro, Puerto Mogan, Puerto Las Nieves, .
