Punta Agnadda

Punta Agnadda is perhaps one of the most beautiful dive sites in the National Park, also because of the colorful fauna. It consists of a 15 mt deep rocky bottom, giving rise to more than one canyon. You could easily capture big barracudas, saddled breams, groupers, moray eels and crayfish. There's also a big lobster and 3 huge cerianti living inside a narrow cave. The exciting and colorful flora is ideal for lovers of macrofoto. Photo Gallery.

 

Cala Tumbarino

Punta Tumbarino is characterized by a rocky bottom and two pinnacles rising from 18 to 4 mt, that make the habitat for shoals of barracudas, saddled breams, big groupers, nudibranchi and lobsters that share the surrounding sea. Photo Gallery.

 

 

Punta dei Corvi

Big groupers are a typical attraction of this dive site. You'll see saddled breams, castagnole, hunting sea breams and ricciole. There's also plenty of cave fish like moray eels, congers, cicale, breams and octopuses. Photo Gallery.

 

 

Punta Grabara

The dive starts from a consistent rocky seabed: after a brief 15 mt deep path, the scene changes to a leap with big stones and uneven bed, full of holes for groupers, moray eels, big sea breams hunting, etc. It's often possible to admire some sharks. (verdesche). Photo Gallery.

 

 

 

Punta Pedra Bianca

The dive begins from a 12 mt deep seabed, with big rocks among witch big moray eels and corvine swim. We then move out of sea finding natural canyons (to a maximum depth of 44 mt). Expert divers could explore the canyon back and forth or around an oxbow (max 20 mt deep), often catching big sea breams, corvine, barracudas, breams and groupers. An attraction is also microfauna like nudibranchi, platelminti, small shellfish and rare sea shells. Photo Gallery.

 

Punta Sabina

This fantastic dive shows a seabed made of granite mountains and canyons, where drifts favour sea fans. Between july and august big octopuses lay and oxygenate eggs all over the area. There are also groupers, moray eels and some congers, while mullets search for food on sandy patches. You'll often come across gilthead breams, red snappers and big barracuda shoals. There are a lot of flabelline and cratene, nudibranchi and platelminti too. Photo Gallery.

 

Punta Salippi

Going up from the rocky 20 ft deep seabed with its lobsters and mullets, you'll notice the rock face full of sponges. We'll then follow a less deep rock face, rising up to 4 mt. This dive is perfect to micro lovers, because of the presence of many little organisms. Photo gallery.

 

 

Punta Tumbarino

The dive starts from a 5 mt shoal and goes down to 35. Currents may cause some difficulties but facilitate the parazohantus flourishing and colouring the reef deep yellow. In this site there's plenty of barracudas, red snappers, tuna, groupers and moray eels, plus nudibranchi and platelminti for macro lovers. Photo Gallery.

 

 

Punta Trabuccato

This 15 to 20 mt dive is nevertheless suitable for quite experienced divers because of costant drifts and lack of reference points, leading to lose one's bearings. The dive follows the seabed shape, made of rocks and posidonia where fish and microfauna bring together. We'll start from a narrow sandy area, then follow the rocks in a circular way, running through big groupers, moray eels, corvine, breams, some big snappers and ricciole hunting. On rocks there are sponges, policheti and nudibranchi. Photo Gallery.

 

Punta Barbarossa

This dive is quite easy and ideal for non-experts. The sandy seabed is covered in big rocks and Posidonia, among whitch it's easy to spot pinna nobilis, small shellfish and nudibranchi. The site is also rich in groupers, big moray eels, breams and also many different sponges. Photo Gallery.
