Capo Rosso

Located at the southern end of the Gulf of Porto, Capo Rosso is one of the most beautiful dive sites in the region. You dive amongst several submerged pinnacles, forming a majestic landscape with richly covered walls to explore: forests of red gorgonian fans with cute spirographs scattered in the middle. The coralligenous algae flora and crevices serve as a shelter for a few moray eels and some crayfish. With a bit of luck you'll find the rare and protected Spanish Lobster... The fauna is thriving around the cape, with clouds of pink anthias, schools of snappers and breams. A few massive resident groupers are also to be seen, along with slender stingrays, down at 35m on the sea bed! Have fun!
