Ibiza has been named Europe's leading diving destination, the island's tourist board has announced.

The Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) conferred the title with special mention for its Punta Dive and Vellmari Europe centres.

Xico Tarres, president of Ibiza Council, met with representatives from the diver training organisation to receive the award.

The Vellmari Europe centre was praised for its innovation and the wide range of online courses it offers.

Popular diving destinations on the Mediterranean island include the Posidonia seabed, which was given Unesco World Heritage site status in 1999.

Visitors can also explore underwater life at locations in Sa Pedrera, Ses Margalides and the islands of Es Vedranell and Isles Bledes.

But holidaymakers might want to make sure they have comprehensible travel insurance so they can relax knowing they are covered for any eventuality.
