Puerto Galera is a feast for the eyes. Having enjoyed the protection afforded by its marine sanctuary status for years, the coral reefs are alive and vibrant. Spear fishing is banned, and local dive operators forbid the taking of anything except pictures on the dive sites. Most of the deeper dives are along walls and drop-offs and currents can be strong. It is best to dive with an experienced divemaster or instructor to avoid problems. At least 16 dive centers are located along the beaches of Sabang, Small Lalaguna, Big Lalaguna, Coco Beach and Encenada Beach resort in Varadero Bay on the south coast of the isthmus.
