England is not likely to be at the top of your list for a scuba diving holiday but the waters off the south western county of Cornwall offer world class diving in a picturesque setting. With the most temperate climate in the country and the clear, clean waters of the Atlantic Gulf Stream, there is no reason that Cornwall shouldn’t be your next diving holiday destination!
The most popular dive location in Cornwall would be The Manacles, a spectacular coral reef that covers approximately 1 square mile. With dive sites ranging from 8m below the surface to 80m, this is a great spot for divers of all skill levels and you will be rewarded with some of the best scenic diving in the British Isles.
What are you likely to see on a dive at The Manacles? Well there have been more shipwrecks here than any other similar reef on the south coast of Britain; so this is the place for some spectacular wreck dives. With more than 110 wrecks to explore, you aren’t likely to get bored of the area quickly. If wreck diving isn’t your thing, then you’ll be amazed by the sea life on show, from Basking Sharks and porpoises, to jewel anemones and forests of soft coral.
If a scuba diving holiday in Cornwall is for you, why not consider staying in a self catering holiday cottage? With the space to store all of your equipment and the freedom to come and go as you choose, there really is no better option. Just imagine coming back from a breathtaking dive and curling up in front of roaring fire in the privacy of your own holiday cottage; what could be better than that?
