Piscine du Lion de Mer

The dive site “Sea lion“ is located near the side, off the harbor of Santa Lucia. This rock, inhabited by families of sea birds, is one of the most famous dive sites in the Frejus St. Raphael area. A great use of this “swimming pool“ is that it is a great place to shelter boats when the weather is not good!

This dive site is lined with Posidonia meadows. As you go deeper you will find some rocky cliffs where usual flora and fauna of the Mediterranean will be found.
