This dive site is located at the West coast of Vila do Corvo. It is an easy dive, shallow and with no current. The dive starts along a wall that goes from the surface to 16m depth. All the surrounding area of the rock is constituted by sand. The fauna near the bottom presents common species of Azorean waters such as breams, groupers, damselfish, rainbow wrasses, ornate wrasses, and parrot fish. The wall presents also a small cave with an opening in the top that allows the light to enter creating an amazing show. The entrance of the cave is narrow and to go in is not advised. In the end of the Wall the current is a little bit stronger which allows the observation of big size pelagic life such as barracudas, almaco jacks, white travellys, and Atlantic bonito.
