Le Sec du Clocher / The Bell Tower Pinnacle

Located right in the middle of the Bay of Calvi, the Bell Tower Pinnacle is a stack of rock in the shape of a bell, its base about 50m deep... for experienced divers only. Descend in the blue and you'll hit a small plateau at 35m, with lots of groupers, moray eels and snappers swimming around the maze of rocks. Lots of different species shelter and live in the cracks, ledges and small overhangs along the rock: pink anthias, seabreams, rock cods, scorpionfish and more. Down at 50 meters, explore the little cave covered in red coral and check out the little statue of an angel... On your way up, hover along a dense forest of red gorgonian fans.
