This dive is performed along several large ravines or ‘caneiros’ formed by lava flows, with some sandy patches. Located at depths of between 18 and 25mts. Heading for the open sea, the wall of the last ravine drops to a sandy seafloor located at 40-45mts, where it is possible to see both large dusky Groupers and barred Hogfish.
Although this spot is close to the coast and the harbor (so it is not exposed to strong currents), it is only recommended for experienced divers because of its depth.
