The diving starts from the natural pools, at 3mts of depth we are confronted with a fabulous landscape, from rock formations to marine diversity.
We begin to submerge up to 12mts and towards the northeast, to about 100mts we find the true Arcada de São Roque (translated from Portuguese: San Roque Arcades). A rock formation in the form of an arch that rises from the bottom up to 4mts from the surface.
The marine diversity in this arch is impressive, from the yellow corals that cover most of its extension, to the great schools of Bicuda and to the yellow Damselfish.
It is also a great place for a snorkelling.
