The lighthouse marks this fantastic local dive, usually done as a drift with reef to the left shoulder. This dive site is famous for it’s amazing gorgonian forest at 15 meters leading to a sandy plateau packed with soft coral, home to many species of fish. The currents at the corner trap great quantities of plankton which attracts a lot of pelagic fish, good chance to see Napoleons, Eagle Rays, Manta and Shark.
