Large rock with various channels and passages carved into the rock by erosion. To avoid over-exertion during the dive, due to the frequent currents, it is advisable to take advantage of the protection given by the channels.
Divers can swim Southeast to Northwest, or in the opposite direction, depending on the direction of the bottom current.
The water courses offer protection for juveniles of some species, therefore it is common to find a lot of fauna in this zone.
The rock ends at a wall, which in certain places can be as high as two meters, resting on a bottom of fine sand. The wall has various indentations where you can see prawns, crabs, and other small species.
