Playa Blanca has a unique new dive site: the Museo Atlántico. Here divers can visit the only underwater sculpture museum in Europe.
Artist Jason deCaires Taylor is known for his underwater creations. He was behind the world's first underwater sculpture park, off Grenada in the Caribbean and a submerged museum off the coast of Cancún, Mexico.
The models used for these sculptures are Lanzarote residents. You can also see the famous Raft of Lampedusa, a reference to the current refugee crisis. The third component is a group of children in little brass boats, called Los Jolateros.
Also there are several hybrid sculptures (half human, half cactus) depicting the merging of nature and humanity, existing together in harmony. The sculptures of a couple taking a selfie and some photographers refer to the use of new technology in our modern society.
Those are just some examples of what you will find, so join us on a dive to the unique Museo Atlántico, the only underwater sculpture museum in Europe!
