This spot is very close to our famous wreck dive spot: River Gurara.
If there are favourable conditions, this is a spot you just have to dive! You will not regret going to this amazing dive site.
The cave has a big entrance and as you go further and further inside it splits into 2. The bigger one is on your left side and you will be able to see lots of jewellery anemones that, depending on the season, will show us a colourful wall illuminated by natural light. Getting deeper into the cave, the walls start to narrow and force you to use artificial light. You can explore the recesses and small walls where you can always get a surprise by seeing a Conger or small crabs, among other species.
Start your return to the entrance and appreciate the rock formations. Gaze at the sunbeams dancing into the wall.
Near the entrance, and if you got spare time, you can explore the other side (right side when you initiate your dive) and find other sorts of fauna and flora like shrimps and nudibranchs.
