Les Cirques de Marifaja / Marifaja's Calderas

The topography of this dive site is quite dramatic, with sheer walls about 12m high framing sandy calderas. It's a dream come true for a few species that shelter under and around the rocks: stingrays, moray eels, snappers or groupers can be observed around 15m in depth. Another hotspot on the site is found 27m down, in a sandy caldera: rare Mediterranean giant Mother-of-Pearl! You need the Advanced/CMAS 2 dive ticket if you want to explore the whole site... Open your eyes and soak it in!
