Le Lion de Terre

Located at the exit of the harbor of Santa Lucia, this site is best for already certified divers. The access point is through the rocks by foot, then a short swim out before descending.

All the Mediterranean species will be seen here (grouper, dente, barracuda, moray eels, bonito, and more) in their wild habitat and the crustaceans are of good size.
