Museo Atlantico

12 metres beneath the waves off the coast of Playa Blanca lies Lanzarote´s most innovative attraction - an underwater museum created by the British artist Jason Taylor de Caires.

The Museo Atlantico is designed ultimately to promote marine conservation and is comprised of life size sculptures, based on local residents, which in years to come will become covered in coral -  as many reefs are dying out in other parts of the world.

The Museo covers around 2500 square metres just off the coast of Los Coloradas and is ideal for divers, who can book visits via officially appointed local dive centres at a cost of 12 euros per person (restricted to those aged 16 years plus).  And is open Monday to Saturday from 09.30 to 17.30.
