The striking contrast between the black molten rock and the vibrant violet algae or yellow verongias creates a mesmerizing spectacle for divers exploring this underwater landscape. As they descend, divers are often accompanied by large schools of bogas swimming gracefully in the blue hues of the water. At deeper depths, one can encounter magnificent rays and Canary Island lobsters nestled within the hollows of the rock formations.

This dive site offers a unique experience unlike any other on the island. The vast expanse of molten rock, combined with the moat-like structure that plunges more than 100 meters deep, creates awe-inspiring lava ravines that will leave divers breathless.
