This spot consists of an old dune that is now sedimented.
In the bottom we have fine sediments, reason why divers should have good control of their buoyancy: as to not raise it and compromise the visibility.
The top of the rock is covered with gorgonians, some with considerable dimensions, and corals such as Dendrophyllia Ramea.
We can observe schools of Anthias, as well as lobsters.
