Punta Locca

South from the beach in Liamone, at Capigliolu Spit, Punta Locca is one of the most beautiful dives in Corsica. It's a wall dive along some rocky cliffs. The topography is very dramatic: a big boulder, several pinnacles and a sheer drop down to 60m, cracks, ledges, tunnels, and caves... they all serve as shelter and habitats for the typical Mediterranean fauna. Drummers, corbfish, rock cods, snappers, groupers, scorpionfish, anthias, nudibranchs, they're all here! Red gorgonian fans are everywhere, with colourful sponges scattered about and Dalmatian Doris nudibranch crawling all over the place. It's the ideal dive site for introductory dives! Only experienced divers with deep diving certs. are allowed to go out in the blue and explore the site from beginning to end...
