Pedrinha de Maia

The Pedrinha de Maia dive site is located in a marine reserve area a couple miles from the coast. Shallow water diving is perfect for night dives and snorkeling.

At 6 meters deep, you can already observe the first small schools of fish—perfect for snorkelers and beginners.

For the slightly more experienced divers, you will have the opportunity to dive one of the 3 accessible caves. To leave one of them, you come up a 17-meter shaft—that’s 4 stories!

Finally, for the more experienced divers, you can go to the center of the deepest cave where you’ll swim with colorful Anthias, groupers, and big schools of pelagic fish!

Cave divers! Night divers! Ready, set, dive
