With a maximum depth of 21m and 8m on top, this is the perfect place to dive and appreciate local marine life that usually lives in this kind of environment.
It starts from the seaside, with thin broad stones on the seabed at 21m, and gradually falls to 8m. Then, on landside, it goes straight to the bottom, forming a wall.
The diver can submerge certain that he will find a place full of marine life, from the coloured anemones to sponges, from the crustaceans to the molluscs and many varieties of fish that surround these rocks.
Beside marine life, this site also offers some natural attractions, such as walls and canyons 4m high where divers can swim through and enjoy the amazing life that grows everywhere in this unique dive site.
For these and others attractions, "Pelo Negro" is one of the best and most visited rock dives.
Excellent for any diver and very good for night diving.
