Paredes do Cabo

The "Cable Walls" dive site is conveniently situated near the magnificent Cabo Espichel cliff in Portugal. With a maximum depth of 18m and an average visibility of 8m, this site offers an ideal diving experience for beginners. One of its standout features is the presence of remnants from the River Gurara wreck, adding an intriguing element to the dive. The stern portion of the wreck can be found approximately 100m to the south.

This dive site is known for providing a safe haven for various species, allowing them to grow and seek protection from larger predators. Divers can encounter a diverse range of marine life, including Cuttlefish, red mullets, seabreams, and more.

Exploring the wall, divers will come across a small cave aptly named "the chapel." However, only one diver at a time is allowed to venture into it while being mindful not to disturb any sediment. The cave is teeming with hidden treasures, such as cuttlefish, red mullets, and shrimp nestled within the crevices. Additionally, the wall is adorned with magnificent gorgonians and a wide array of nudibranchs. In just one dive, divers can observe an impressive average of 20 different species of nudibranchs. This gentle and tranquil dive makes it an excellent site for underwater photography enthusiasts.

For those seeking this thrilling diving experience, the Cable Walls dive site is conveniently located near Castelo, Sesimbra, and Setúbal in Portugal.
