Diving Site Description: Located just a short 25-30 minute journey from the dive center, this dive site offers an ideal experience for both beginner and advanced divers. With a sandy shallow area ranging from 3-10 meters, there is ample opportunity to explore and even spot seahorses! As you venture deeper, a steep wall awaits, reaching depths between 10-40 meters.

Marine Life: Prepare to encounter a diverse range of marine life, including conger eels, octopuses, lobsters, spider crabs, leopard snails, flabellina, nudibranches, seahorses, shrimps, and schools of fish.

Dive Experience: Your dive will begin at the sandy anchoring point where the boat is secured. Within just 1-2 minutes, you will reach the impressive wall, which gradually slopes down in terraces before becoming steeper. Keep an eye out for cracks and small holes along the wall, perfect hiding spots for various species of crabs. As you continue your dive, you'll come across an indentation in the wall where lobsters like to seek shelter. After approximately 25 minutes or when reaching a dive pressure of around 100 bar, it's advisable to head back towards shallower waters, ranging from 3-12 meters. Here, you'll find a large sandy area adorned with rock formations, large stones, and an array of beautiful gold sponges. Take your time to explore this area and keep your eyes peeled for the elusive seahorses.
