Coming down along the anchor line the divers find themselves in the middle of an impressing configuration build by gigantic rocks. Here the sea presents an excellent visibility that exceeds 25 meters most of the times.

The following course leads us to the El Greco reef. Right at the beginning there is a fascinating cavity full of plants that impress the eye through their variety in shapes and colors.

Another, smaller cave with sandy bottom can be observed on our way. The cave is big enough for four divers. Although plenty of sunlight is illuminating the cave’s inside with a torch you might go on a discovery-tour for cavities, holes and rocky ledges and their interesting marine inhabitants.

Around the reef you will meet groupers, octopuses, lobsters, tuna fish, morays, as well as sea anemones, spirographs, and a great variety of sponges and shells. The fascinating combination of a cave and a reef makes El Greco reef so attractive for many divers.
