This dive is decribed as a single dive, although it could be divided into two. First the visit to the Puenta de la Mona where you can find a small cave with banks of wrens, three tails and even small lobsters. The most actractive are the colorful rocks carpeted with anemones and sponges, which unfolds to the same place and the catalog of nudibranchs (snails) you can find here, all a delight for macro lovers. See Immersion 11.

 

The second option is going to the side of the beach, where you can find shallow cracks, upholstered of orange created by Astroides. Following the dive by passing through an area of stone background; do not stop descending to the bottom, you will be happily surprised. There is a rock, which extends to the beach with a small cave that is formed by two large stone blocks. This is where a colony of wrens and cardinals (Apogon imberbis) live, a pleasure to photograph them. By continuing the tour you can hopefully encounter seahorses and all the typical life of the area. A dive with various possibilities and is adaptable to all levels.
