With an easy dive, this cave offers a thrilling overhead environment. Begin your adventure by entering the cave from the water's surface, leading into a spacious first hall. As you venture further, at a distance of 15 meters from the entrance, you will encounter a second hall adorned with a captivating air bubble. The maximum depth of this dive reaches -6 meters.

Immerse yourself in the magnificent surroundings of the cave, where you can witness the vibrant shoals of damselfish, various species of sea breams, mesmerizing starfish, and graceful nudibranchs. This remarkable dive typically follows a one-way route, allowing you to explore the Dwarf Cave alongside the main cave. The Dwarf Cave obtained its name from the presence of a garden dwarf figurine, placed more than three decades ago by an Argentinian diver, Tito Lagotti, and his Spanish diving companion, affectionately known as "Pepon." With a spacious entrance and two access routes, the Dwarf Cave reveals its interior in all its splendor, leading you to a grand hall and the beginning of the dry cave. You can opt to navigate through the lower siphon or follow the cave's roof. Typically, divers enter through the siphon, spending some awe-inspiring moments in the grand hall before gracefully journeying along the cave's roof, accompanied by mesmerizing air bubbles and enchanting backlights.
