A large sandy bottom area in which there are rocky outcrops of considerable length. One at one and a half meters high,located at an average depth of 30mts. The main attraction of this place is the existence of Catfish, a small species of shark that stands near the bottom, usually on the border between the rocky bottom and the sandy bottom. When sighted, and provided that the approach is done carefully, it is possible to be quite close and to obtain spectacular images. The visibility of the place varies between 2-10mts depending on the sea conditions.
