Faro dei Monaci

The Monks' lighthouse is a dive that takes place under the lighthouse on the island of the same name. It anchors in a cove well sheltered from the Grecale and Scirocco winds. The bottom is 5 metres, ideal for beginners. It then descends fairly quickly to 30/35 metres, where the gorgonians can be seen. There are cracks on the wall.

Lots of moray eels in the crevices. White shad. Shoals of banded bream and guillemots. You can also see barracudas and meet nudibranchs and gorgonians.
