This spot is very pretty, due to the large variety of gorgonians that it has in its background.
Usually, the dive here begins at 28-30mts and we can admire the gorgonians that almost cover the bottom as if it were a colorful carpet.
We can find Seabreams and Red breams but the highlight of this spot is that Sunfish or Moon-fish come here to be cleaned, so if we are lucky we get to see some.
We usually begin the dive in direction to the North, less deep. At around more or less 20mts we begin to see some dispersed rock formations, like mushrooms. As we go less deep the rocks begin to be larger and more compact, here we can find little crabs hidden on soft and hard corals.
This spot is very nice for those who enjoy little fish, crabs, anemones etc.
