Escull del Gobernador

Discover the captivating rocky islet located just outside Es Talaier in Spain's picturesque waters. From the water's surface, experience the awe-inspiring sight of the magnificent wreck of the Malakoff, a cargo ship resting just a few hundred meters offshore.

This dive site offers a rich diversity of marine life, including groupers, moray eels, barracudas, nudibranchs, scorpion fish, octopuses, snappers, amberjacks, rays, torpedoes, and triggerfish. The low season is the ideal time to witness these fascinating creatures up close.

Accessible by boat, the islet forms a narrow channel that gradually descends from the coastline. Divers can explore the islet's depths ranging from 17 to 7 meters, and then ascend to the safety stop while relishing the marine wonders of the channel.

With a visibility of 26 meters and a maximum depth of 16 meters, this dive spot is suitable for beginners seeking an unforgettable underwater adventure. Located near Cami de Cavalls, Ciutadella, Menorca, Balearic Islands, Spain, this pristine location promises an incredible diving experience.
