THE DIVES

The Sciara’s Little Rock

In the northern part of the island, some big rocks just emerging from the sea rely on a basalt rock located at a depth of -10 metres below the surface of the sea. Almost invisible with fair sea, they were the cause of numerous shipwrecks. For the diver, moving among these rocks is like wandering in a coloured maze; the rock faces are covered by multiple varieties of organisms and small groups of young fishes move rapidly seeking protection against predators. This small vertical labyrinth offers a great observation point, both towards the open sea (groupers, white seabreams, dentexes, garfishes and more) and the coastal area, where thousands of small fishes gather in groups. In this area, you can also meet rays and barracudas.
