In this "Anchors Cemetery" there are around 40 anchors, left in this place for several hundred years.
There are 2 buoys that signal this spot, one is more to the North and has a depth of about 16mts, where the "555" anchor is located on top of a rock. Going Southwest we can observe anchors of several periods of time.
When we reach a vertical wall we can observe Seabreams, Stingrays, Salemas and Moray.
As we descend this wall to the sandy bottom, about 35mts we have an inverted anchor, one of the many attractions of this spot.
