Large rock located a few hundred meters from Cabo da Roca that rises from 30mts to almost to the surface. Its top can be discovered at low tide.
Due to its location, access to this location is only possible with good sea conditions. It is difficult to enter the water, especially when there is a combination of ripples with low tides.
The cliffs of the rock are wall-like, and to the North, there is a second smaller rock forming a canyon of just over a dozen meters wide. In this canyon, it is possible to find lobsters and big-sized snails as well as some cannons belonging to an old shipwreck totally encrusted with marine life.
To the West, the outer cliff decreases in height until it disappears completely to the south of the stone reaching depths of 30mts.
Outside the canyon, sometimes large shoals of fish, such as Croakers can be seen.
The visibility can vary between 2 and 20mts depending on the sea conditions.
