Depth: 15/30 mt

Dive site characterized by a striking rock fall which, starting from the side of the mountain above it, sinks in the clear waters forming a rock that remember of an ancient Roman ship, the “Galera”.

In the two bays divided by this landslide we are an ideal place to practice out diving courses or make our "Baptism of the sea". Following the sea bed to the open sea, we have the ability to make a dive where the meeting with huge groupers, barracuda and amberjack is on the agenda, with the possibility to keep both about twenty meters both more in depth. Unforgettable are the clouds of damselfish, so dense in some periods of the season, that give us the impression they were facing a real wall. In the shallower area it is easy to meet beautiful mantis shrimp, octopus and moray eels hidden in the countless ravines, close to large rocks near the surface live many colonies of bream and banded bream of all sizes.
