“The importance of the wealth of flora and fauna existing on the seabed off La Herradura, and the repercussion that the competition will have on the sporting and accommodation sector, is something that we are well aware of,” explained Councillor Daniel Barbero.

First Councillor, Juan José Ruiz Joya, said, “It makes us proud because it confirms that the course taken by the Town Hall and the local diving clubs, etc, over the last few years was the correct one.”

The even is organised by the Federación Andaluza Actividades Subacuáticas (FEAAS) and the Club de Buceo Benalmádena, with the support of the Board of Tourism as well as the local diving clubs.
