Water craft traffic
A terraced rock with lots of indentations near the sandy bottom, at depths of ten to fifteen meters or more, depending on the tide. This is an ideal dive for leisurely appreciation of the varied sea life hidden in the rocky indentations.
Various species of fish, molluscs and crustaceans can be seen, as well as nudibranch, ceriths, spirographs, anemones, gorgonians and different types of algae.
There is normally very little current, making this site ideal for night diving. Even by day, the use of a torch is recommended, to fully appreciate the sea life sheltering in the fissures in the rock.
