On the northwest coast of Gran Canaria, the snorkeling at Playa Sardina Del Norte is best known for its larger marine life. During Sadina del Norte snorkeling, you may encounter angel sharks, large stingrays, and if you are lucky, whale sharks too. The best snorkeling can be found off the rock jetty pier structure and the seafloor drops quickly.
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, Sardina Del Norte is the 27th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 39 snorkeling dives in Canary Islands. Several of the better snorkeling spots are nearby Sardina Del Norte including Playa Arinaga , El Cabron, Playa De Las Cateras, Caleta De Abajo, Playa El Puertillo and Pasito Blanco.
