As a whole, it is practically a submerged "mountain".
The rock formations that gather on the sand become an oasis for marine life. It is possible to have rare encounters in our waters such as Rays (among other examples, that for some reason included this place in their route).
The extent of these rock formations on the submarine bottom is considerable. It is ideal to make your decompression level without worrying about the depth gauge as you stroll in areas that are progressively approaching the surface.
There are also several small canyons where encounters with marine life are proportional to depth. During the hotter months, it is common to find hundreds of Triggerfish that end up making this dive very sui-generis.
