Description of the site of natural interest
This marked trail enables a discovery by stages of all the marine habitats of the Mediterranean. A coastal mat forms from the edge of the beach. From a depth of 2 m, the neptune grass meadow shelters a host of fish species: damselfish, green wrasse, common two-banded sea bream, peacock wrasse, etc. In well-lit rocky shallow areas, rainbow and ornate wrasse come and go, the scorpionfish on the seafloor blend in with their rocky surroundings, while the red sea star is easily visible. Further and deeper, in the obscurity of fractures in the rock, colonies of yellow cluster anemones and orange-red encrusting sponge cover the rock and form a multicoloured patchwork. In the zone affected by the swell, a few mollusks cling to the rock, including limpets. Deeper, in the rocky talus, the grouper is on the lookout and the moray eels and octopus hide away in their cavities.
The seabeds are preserved here.
