The Cathedrals

Located at the far end of the Gulf of Valinco, this dive site owes its name to the numerous rocky pinnacles and peaks scattered around the site, looking like cathedrals' bell tower arrows. Those peaks leave the bottom at 50m depth and end up 6m under the surface, they're covered in red coral and yellow anemones. Going down or up those pinnacles is a colourful and magical voyage where all the local fauna mingles and thrives: tunicates, gorgonian fans, moray eels, groupers, snappers, and even barracudas. Arguably one of the most beautiful dive sites in the Mediterranean Sea!
