    Had a disappointing visit to El Campello yesterday , 6/10/23. Went for the snorkelling but because of masses of seaweed in the water we found it difficult to enter the water. It was impossible to navigate the large stones/ pebbles because you couldn’t see them, in addition the soup like seaweed clung to the body.
    We’d had a longish journey to get their , because this area has a reputation for good snorkelling, so is it possible to find out what conditions are like before travelling ?

      Hi Mark. I don’t know of any way other then perhaps on Social Media. Sorry you had a bad experience. I guess it’s a problem with the Med, especially at this time of year. We’ve seen a lot of seaweed in the Santa Pola area, so it’s probably no surprise that it’s happening elsewhere. If they are going to promote this “snorkelling route” they talk about then things have to change. Whether that is just letting people know of problems or cleaning it up, I don’t know!
