Description: It is a deep dive, often subject to moderate to strong currents; it is nevertheless accessible to less experienced divers and even suitable for snorkeling. Most divers choose to hang to the anchor cable, between 5 and 15 meters, since most of the local fauna can be seen also at shallow depths.
For more experienced divers, however, it is possible to explore the sea bottom, at a depth of around 46 meters. It consists of a small 50-meter platform, rich in life forms: schools of pelagic fish, amber jacks of impressive size, bluefish and even ocean sunfish.
