This dive, which is one of most beautiful island’s dive, starts at 30 metres on a bottom full of posidonian beds.Then we descend through a wide and impressive crack surrounded by red paramuricee along all its length and crowded with a great concentration of Anthias and pomfrets.
The contrast between the colour of the reef and the blue of the sea creates a surreal atmosphere.On the way we meet some lobsters and morays and, as we reach the sandy bottom, we see a small cave that houses a forkbeards. Leaving back the reef edge and going towards some lonely reefs on a sandy bottom at 40 metres, we find a wonderful yellow branch of Gerardia savaglia (false black coral) above one of those reefs.
At the end of the dive we pass through a cave full of large school of apagons, which lead us, with its plays of light, to the opposite side of the posidonian beds’ plateau.We swim for a little while between the saddled breams and finally we go back to the boat.
