El Bajonito

Half a mile west of Marina San Miguel, this fantastic pinnacle between 13 and 45 meters sits in the middle of a protected bay. Suitable for advanced divers, during the tide excursion, in new or full moon, it is possible to meet mild currents. It is so wide that there are at least two explorable dive routes.

Big shoals of barracudas and roncadores, moray eels of different species, octopus, stingrays and eagle rays, bonitos and tuna, nudibranchs, dentex and porgies, anemones, and lobsters.
