Diving tourismMore and more tourists are using the diving facilities available along the coastal region of Murcia.

 
Year after year, the popularity of discovering the beauty hidden under the local part of the Mediterranean is growing continuously, so much so that it’s predicted to rise by 10 percent this season.

 
President of the local business association, Daniel Martinez, says that much of this increase is due to the amount of foreign visitors looking to try out a new skill or looking to add this area of Spain to their list of diving experiences. Almost 24 percent of divers come from the UK, France, Germany, Holland, and the Nordic countries. The rest come from Murcia, Madrid, Valencia, Castilla La Mancha, Castilla León and Andalucía.

 
Diving is a growing interest in the region with 25 authorized centres employing 400 people and a further 2,000 indirect jobs rely on the activity. This sector promises more creation of jobs as the popularity grows.

 
It’s estimated that every diver spends around €120 per day that goes not only in the pockets of the diving business owners but to those in local hotels, bars, restaurants and supermarkets.
