Boat or Shore Dive 0m to 12m -- Usually starting from Playa de la Barrilla, this gentle dive takes divers out onto the natural extensions of the sheltering horseshoe arms of the bay. There is a long natural cave at 5 metres and the bay itself is very sheltered and home to vast shoals of tame fish. Look out for Grey Mullet, Sea Bream, Parrotfish, Lizardfish, Wrasse, Damselfish and Cuttlefish. At night Octopus, Angel Sharks and Tube Worms are commonly seen. This bay is used for training, refresher and night dives, but is worth exploring by all levels of diver.
