Washington Rock

One of the most fascinating and spectacular dive sites in La Maddalena Archipelago. Located off Spargi Island in the Bonifacio channel, this pinnacle is formed with several massive rocks covered in yellow and red gorgonian fans, and sponges. The North-West face is especially covered in red! The site is the ideal place for a colony of groupers! Those waters are also inhabited by barracudas and pelagics, like tunas.
