This is a spot starting at around 22mts deep. Here we can find several dispersed rock formations that are condensing as we navigate to the North.
If we look carefully we will be able to find several species of nudibranchs, rock crabs and small fish besides the usual Seabreams and Parrotfish. Camouflaged in the sand between the rocks it's frequent to find Sole and Turbot besides Cuttlefish. Some days, if we get lucky, we can see Sunfish swimming around us.
If we choose to dive on the sandy bottom at 22 to 24mts we can find hermit crabs that are not visible in the rock zone. This is a good spot for OWD divers, who want to look for a small life, besides the usual anemones, soft corals, algae etc...
We can also find lots of Starfish, Scorpionfish, Flounders, red Mullet, Wrasse, Zeus Faber, and even more.
This is a great dive for those that love marine life!
