Description: An astounding archipelago of no less than 250 coral islands and islets, Jardines de la Reina is a protected environment and National Marine Reserve with 75 miles of mangrove-fringed coral reefs and one of the last untouched diving areas in the world!

At Jardines de la Reina, an almost pristine archipelago of 250 virgin coral islands, some 60 miles into the Caribbean Sea off the South-Western coast of Cuba, await the discerning diver!

A National Marine Reserve, with access restricted to only 700 divers per annum, this really is a completely undeveloped natural wilderness.

With 75 miles of mangrove fringed coral islands, this is truly one of the last untouched reef systems in the diving world.

And it is undoubtedly one of the very best shark-diving destinations there is!

A quote from a recent traveller to Jandines de la Reina:

The diving was fantastic. I don't know where else you can have this good quality diving and only 5 tourists in a massive archipelago (though if you know somewhere else - let me know for my next holiday!!!!).

We dived with sharks every day - silky and caribbean reef sharks came when the DMs fed them, we also saw nurse sharks. On the feeds we had up to 18 sharks exceedingly close to us, and apparently there are more in the winter when the water's clearer.

Saw some turtles, eagle rays, stingrays and lots of the normal lovely tropical fish. The soft coral gardens were beautiful, underwater paradise. We've dived in several other countries, and were very impressed with the diving here.
