pierre plonge - Le site est très petit et vous avez vite fait de passer à travers toutes les arches Vous pouvez terminer la plongée en vous dirigeant vers l'impérial du milieu, vous allez avoir une succession de blocs qui pour certains descendent à 40m Pour une autre plongée vous pouvez partir de l'impérial du milieu et terminer en suivant un tombant sur l'impérial du large. Vous pouvez faire le circuit impérial du milieu impérial de terre
