Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

By Dave Jones VA­LEN­CIA tourism of­fi­cials have been to Birm­ing­ham to pro­mote div­ing on the Costa.

They took part in the DIVE show held at the NEC ex­hi­bi­tion cen­tre at the week­end.

Re­gional sec­re­tary for tourism Francesc Colomer said: “We wanted to show the British pub­lic the bio­di­ver­sity and un­der­sea land­scapes that can be en­joyed in our seas.”

They were also brief­ing div­ing pro­fes­sion­als and the gen­eral pub­lic on the ac­tiv­i­ties re­lated to div­ing that are on of­fer.

Their stand gave away div­ing brochures, maps of div­ing sites and ma­te­rial on the prin­ci­pal div­ing des­ti­na­tions along the coast of the Va­len­cia re­gion.

These in­clude the ma­rine re­serves of Tabarca Is­land and Cabo de San An­to­nio on the north Costa Blanca.

Sr Colomer noted that the re­gion boasts more than 50 div­ing cen­tres and staff were also present at the ex­hi­bi­tion to of­fer more in depth as­sess­ments to po­ten­tial cus­tomers. He noted that DIVE is the fifth such ex­hi­bi­tion they have at­tended this year as the re­gional tourism depart­ment seeks to boost the rep­u­ta­tion of Va­len­cia’s div­ing sites and at­tract qual­ity all-year­round tourism.
