The entrance is directly from the beach, on a sandy bottom, the bottom goes down gently and in the first part of the dive is worth a walk on the prairie where turtles often meet and occasionally even the legendary dugong (sea cow). In the first 10 minutes of diving you stay at a depth between 2 and 6 meters, you can admire corals of every species and, in the small bays on the north side, we can find the crocodile fish and the walkman fish of the scorpion family. Continuing, around 7 meters, we will find a coral reef that is particularly rich in soft corals, scorpion fish, lyon fish, glass fish, a really exciting spectacle. Still a few finning between box fish, ball fish, trigon, murene, and we reach 18 meters, where a real colony of anemones awaits us with the funny clown fish, which we all now call Nemo.
At this depth for beginners it reverses the route and returns, rising by a few meters to cross the barrier in its brightest part so that you can see what has escaped following the deeper part of the way, colorful coral, murene, possibility of meeting turtles, guitar sharks and more… For the more experienced you can go on, reaching a depth of 27-28 meters, then go back along the reef towards the beach at a depth of 8-10 meters, with more light and more colors.
