A rocky top which forms part of a large rock formation that begins in front of Armação de Pêra, extending to perpendicular to the Galé Beach, comprised of various terraces that descend around three meters, to the gravel bottom.
As the name indicates, there are numerous scorpion fish, hidden among the rocks and algae. Given the depth of around twenty meters, it is advisable to start the dive at the bottom and gradually work your way up the terraces, ending at around 16 meters.
Besides the abundant life, where it is sometimes possible to see large shoals of white seabream, there are numerous invertebrates, such as the colourful gorgonians.
