Located about 100 meters away from the coast there is a geologically very interesting underwater area due to the rock formations that can be found.
At the very same point we can carry out two different dives: One of basic level in which the 20 meters of depth are not surpassed, and another of intermediate level where 30 meters of depth are reached. For that reason a license of advanced diver is required.
After the disappearance of the very high population of lime sea urchin (Diadema antillarum), the algal coverage of the area has once again covered the bottom surface and as a consequence most of the species of fish and invertebrates that live associated with these plant organisms returned to occupy their places in the food chain.
The Bastard Grunt (Pomadasys incisus), Striped Seabream (Lithognatus mormyrus) and White seabream (Diplodus sargus) groups are very visible in rocky habitats and the different types of stingrays in the sandy areas. For its delicacy and the difficulty to be found in other points, the protagonists of this dive are the groups of violescent sea-whip (Paramuricea clavata) that can be found in the mid-level dive.
