Description of the site of natural interest
The Dragon dive allows you to encounter a wide variety of environments: we go from suspended roofs between 15 and 9 m rich in yellow daisies (Parazoanthus axinellae), to walls rich in red coral (Corallium rubrum) and gorgonians (Paramuricea clavata and Eunicella Cavolinii) between 25 and 40 m, and swim around large blocks of rocks scattered on a 40 m seabed covered with beautiful red gorgonians (Paramuricea clavata). There are numerous submerged horizontal fractures that can be observed during the dive where it is possible to see large crustaceans such as lobsters (Palinurus elephas) and magnosas (Scyllarides latus). This dive is suitable for divers with different levels of experience.
