La Pointe de L'Escampo Barriou

This dive site is located at the far end of a sheltered cove (typical Mediterranean feature called a 'Calanque' in French) on Giens' Peninsula. There is a beautiful chimney you can reach from a well around 18 meters: swim through it and out around 12 meters. Off from the outside tip of the cove you'll find a nice drop-off reaching 35 meters depth: octopus, massive spreads of red gorgonian fans, crustaceans, nudibranchs and a rich variety of fish, once again typically Mediterranean!
