This site is situated in front of the point from which it derives its name. This is a very interesting dive for macro-photography and observation of small, curious, photogenic fish and numerous species of colourful invertebrates.
In the indentations in the rock formation, there are numerous gobies, as well as other small fish and sizeable nudibranch.
In the sand, apart from the main rock formation, there are three blocks of rock that are also worth exploring, as they shelter lots of other different species, such as crustaceans and cephalopods.
