Barrocas de Fora

Dive the Algarve with SUBNAUTAThe wall looks like a giant hand, around two hundred meters in length and a hundred meters in width, with the slopes forming the "fingers", around which the diver can explore.

The numerous indentations shelter large shoals of bream. It is also possible to see a variety of other fish, such as hog fish, pout, grouper, ballan wrasse, damselfish, goby and greater forkbeard.

It is an excellent rock for moray eel enthusiasts, as lots of moray, of all sizes, can be found here. As for the invertebrates, octopus and cuttlefish are very abundant, so are nudibranch. There are also occasional residents of the Raja undulate ray species.

A high density of Mesophyll calcareous algae, with its lovely pink colour, can be found among the stones at the top of the rock.
