Faro dei Monaci

It is located in the South Cape of the island of Monaci with a high lighthouse which marks this part of the island. This dive can be done in both directions, depending on the current and the waves; the most frequent move towards the south-east, with the wall to the left. The dive starts from a sheltered bay; after swimming among many rock species populated by moray eels and groupers, we reach the deepest area at a depth of 25-30 meters to admire some red gorgonians. The west side of the island of Monaci is bordered by a vertical granite wall which stands on a sandy bottom about 20 meters deep. Here it is possible to observe the schools of salpa and diplodus swimming near the coast and take beautiful pictures of the seascape.
