This dive site is located at the south coast of S. Jorge Island. The dive begins in the natural pools and since it is a sheltered area it only presents current very seldom. The conditions make this dive perfect for begginers. The bottom presents small arches and caves. At 8m deep, there is a cave with a top opening where lots of schools of juvenile fish such as damselfish, parrot fish, rainbow wrasses, ornate wrasses, breams, and so on, are present. One unique atraction are the effects done by the sun light projected through the top opening that grants the water an intense blue. Leaving this cave towards south the bottom presents small arches where morays and rays can be observed. Once again, shools of juveline fish that grant this site a “small world” condition.
