The dive begins on a sandy bottom, where the ship is anchored to avoid damaging the communities of the rockers we are going to visit. Once we submerge we will reach the depth of 12m and follow the rocky profile heading south until we reach the maximum depth. This area stands out by presenting a unique orography on three levels at different levels of depth, generating terraces  to which divers can examine the lower substrate.

The route is full of cavities, crevices and rocks detached from the cliff, which is an excellent refuge for all types of fauna and flora.

The route is full of cavities, crevices and rocks detached from the cliff, which is an excellent refuge for all types of fauna and flora, such as octopus, morays, serranids, sea breams of all kinds and shady species like the mediterranean cardinalfish (Apogon imberbis). At the end of the dive we will approach an area where it is common to observe large fish species such as sunfish (Mola mola),  which find in this wall a very useful cleaning station.

It is at the end of the dive where it is also possible to observe large masses of gorgonians of different species  on which we can find, with a little patience, european cowrie (Trivia spp.) and nudibranchs, which makes it a very interesting immersion for underwater photographers.
