Le Banc Provencal

20 minutes off the Gulf of Lava, Le Banc Provencal (The Bench from Provence) is a must dive in Corsica. Its average depth makes it accessible only to experienced divers... and they'll be in for a great show! The site is shaped like a two-headed rocky formation, spread apart by a massive crack going down to 50 meters! Snappers, seabreams, rock cods, moray eels, or anthias inhabits the area. For the Naturalist divers among you, check out the few branches of black coral around 32m. Let's yourself drift and enjoy the show!
