    Come to discover a fauna and an exceptional flora!!

    The summit of the rock is situated in 18 meters depth. Do not miss to explore in detail the big fault which goes throughout the rock; congers, moray eels and groupers wait for you there. At the foot of this one, you go to find the sand, 35 meters down.

    We can make here two completely different dives according to the period of sunshine: explore rather the eastern face in the morning : it is the paradise of gorgonians. In the afternoon, visit the western face: you will discover magnificents overhangs papered with sea mimosa. In spring, numerous "esquinades" swimm. In summer, raise the head: barracudas are regular hosts of these places; maybe you will have the happiness of seeing them training their famous spiral or of finding you right in the middle of the bench which will burst: guaranteed feelings!
