Good for night diving
No direct access to surface
A zone with high rocks, underwater passages and caves resulting from sea erosion. Blocks of rock, some very large, scattered at the ends of the passages.
Diving is normally carried out inside the bay, entering via a large cave to open sea, then turning back to the bay by another passage.
In the bay, you can see ballan wrasse, white seabream, conger, and many other varieties of fish. In the caves and passages, you can see lobster, such as the Mediterranean slipper lobster, and various other species of invertebrates.
The use of a torch is recommended, to fully enjoy the panel of colours that can be seen on the walls and the species that take refuge there.
This is an excellent site for photography and video recording, due to the abundant sea life, excellent light conditions and contrasts.
