Dive much appreciated for the life that it has. However, due to its sea conditions, usually there is some current and it is considered a dive for experienced divers only. The average visibility is 5 to 15mts and the maximum depth is of 30mts.
This spot consists of two stones that are about 20 to 30mts apart. As we approach the largest stone we are surrounded by Seabreams, Triggerfish and often we can see schools of Pouts. This stone has canyon forming shelves where you can see Lobsters, rock Crabs, Mediterranean slipper lobsters, Octopuses and many Congers. These two stones are full of life. Yellow, red, orange and purple are predominant colors due to the various species of sponges, soft corals, starfish urchins, etc. For this reason, there are those who consider the "Lagoon Stone" (translated from the Portuguese) the dive where one can observe more and with a greater diversity of life, in mainland Portugal.
