Isla de la Juventud in the Punta Frances Marine National Park is a very wild island in Cuba where I found some amazing dive sites. It is connected to the mainland either by boat or plane, but due to “Cuban time”, they do not usually work properly, so be prepared if you want to go there! There is just one hotel and one dive centre in the whole island.

I was part of the staff of a marine expedition on the island and every morning it took about two hours by boat through the beautiful mangroves to get to the dive sites. The dive sites were definitely worth the long way!

I loved the untouched reefs, the amazing purple sea fans and the canyons ending in beautiful deep reef walls. I personally enjoyed a lot the fact that there were nearly no tourists so that the reef was completely untouched. I loved being surrounded by schools of reef fishes.

I would recommend this dive site to all those divers that are keen on staying in a remote island and willing to discover wild and untouched reefs!
