Water craft traffic
A very interesting site and an easy dive. A rocky formation, reaching two to three meters, comprised of several tunnels and swimthroughs teeming with sea life.
Due to the irregular formation of the rocks, various crustaceans can be found in the fissures in the rock near the sandy bottom, including rock crabs and spider crabs.
Sea snails and multicoloured nudibranch, scorpion fish, ballan wrasse, cuttlefish and octopus can be seen in the central and upper parts of the main rock structure, as well as gorgonians.
There may be some eddies in the water courses, in which case you should avoid the narrower ones.
The use of a torch is recommended, to explore the swimthroughs and tunnels. An excellent site for underwater photography.
