It is a very interesting dive because of its depth, the existence of a rock formation that stands out between a sandy bottom, which houses a great diversity and the presence of two sunken cars.

In this dive we find a relatively open bay that connects to the north with the beach of Marina del Este. It is a very interesting dive because of its depth, the existence of a rock formation that stands out between a sandy bottom, which houses a great diversity and the presence of two sunken cars that came there carried by the strong floods that originated in the mountains close to the area. Each car is at a different depth.

In the rock we will find conger, octopus, grouper, forkbeard and colorful nudibranchs hidden among the crevices. With luck we might observe lobsters (Palinurus elephas).

During the dive we will stay for some time at the same depth of 25m.
