Motore dei Monaci

The dive spot is situated to the north of monaci island. It is an easy and pleasant dive site. The spot takes the name from an old engine situated at 24 meters . It's very interessed the veritcal external wall where inside its little holes is possible to discover some crabs, and a wide variety of nudibrach. Just in front of this wall on a sandy bottom lies the old engine which gives hospitality to some morays. Going on with the dive, we enter into a channel which allows us to arrive to visit some pinnacles situated in the northern side, here sometimes is possible to see some lobsters, morays and little groupers. After passing this area, if you have a good reserve of air and the current is not so strong, we go southwards to explore the west side of the island where numerous gullies make a beatiful underwater landscape populated by big school of Salpe (Sarpa Sarpa) and Anthias.
