Set of underwater elevations of noticeable slope (wall type) located off the coast of Sines that rise from 90mts to a depth of 45mts from the surface.
The slopes of these elevations are covered with grogoneas of great dimensions. It is also possible to find lobsters and Forkbeard fish and other large pelagic fishes, as well as large shoals of small fish.
Given the distance from the coast, it is essential that there are good sea conditions for this dive. The visibility is generally over 20mts and it is necessary to take into account the existence of strong currents.
In certain places and with conditions of excellent visibility and weak current, it's possible (with the help of a scooter) to go from one elevation to another.
