La Grotta di S.Francesco

we start the dive descending for 7 meters, we go to cross a little bay in southeast direction. After few minutes, we will immediately see the entrance to the Cave, which penetrates the rock for about 15 meters and has a wide exit hole at 6 meters. The landscape inside , has spectacular light effects and walls recovered by soft coral, coloured sponges and nudibranchs, it is perfect for taking photos. Outside the cave, the marine environment is made by channels and granitic pinnacles which rise from the sandy bottom (25-30 meters, where there are some yellow gorgonians ) to the depth of about 15 meters. These pinnacles are the favourite haunt of abundant and varied reef fauna, especially Anthias and snappers. In the crevices along the walls of the pinnacles we will see Scorpionfishes and lobsters while along the sandy bottom there are moray and Octopus.
