To the southeast of the Isle of Lobos is the formation of Carrera, only reachable by boat at approximately twenty minutes from Corralejo. In this area the bottom is flat white sand and the reef that surrounds it is shaped like a volcanic crater. This rock is formed from basaltic volcanic furnace, which contains of many cracks and crevices. In the sandy centre the maximum depth is approx 16 meters. The surrounding rocky area is between 10 and 12 metres deep. In the sand you can find Stingrays, and Eagle Rays, as well as Angel Sharks, and in the surrounding rocky areas and small caves are Canarian Lobster, Groupers Zebra Bream , Parrot Fish, Amber Jacks, Barracuda, Saddled Bream, Bermuda Sea Chup, Cow Bream, Guelly Jacks and Morays.
Diving is fine for all certified divers and as it is usually protected from the North wind, it represents a good alternative if weather conditions prevent diving in other more exposed areas. It is a peaceful dive and its waters are usually exceptionally clear. The recommended route is to follow the contour of the crater all the way around, until you return to the starting point, take time to explore the cracks and crevices.
