These shallows, near Capo Fonza, is one of the most popular dive sites off the island. The shallows are easily located from the surface since their summit reaches 3 metres under sea level. The dive begins by following the steep wall reaching a depth of 40 metres towards the open sea.
At the base, the various clefts and small caves house lobsters, white beams and moray eels, while you might see the pretty branches of red coral by carefully looking inside the more protected fractures. The current may make the descent difficult but contributes to the richness of the seabed. The side of the shallows towards the promontory of Capo Fonza is less steep, with big rocks on which there are colonies of yellow Parazoanthus, false corals and the delicate laces of sea roses. In the sandy areas, between the rocks, you’ll sometimes find the great valves of the Pinna nobilis.
