Water craft traffic
A large rock wall, full of indentations and overhangs at a depth of approximately 14 meters, with a further two terraces leading to a mixed bottom, around 16 meters in depth, of small rock and loose pebbles, inhabited by gorgonians of different colours and sizes.
Lots of sea life can be found in the overhangs, which deserve careful and attentive exploration.
On the bottom, it is common to find scorpion fish and goby, as well as larger fish, like white seabream, zebra seabream, gilthead bream and seabream.
Given the relatively easy orientation and the existence of lots of boat traffic in the zone, divers are advised to ascend using a cable or line, launched using a surface marker buoy.
