Secca di Santa Lucia

Off the white beaches of Portoferraio we find this beautiful pinnacle that reaches 8 meters from the surface and offers a breathtaking scenery to take pictures and enjoy a quiet but very rich dive.

Octopuses, logs and moray eels are in every ravine. During the summer, barracudas hunt over the shoal along with amberjacks. Frequent passage of large tunas.
