Amphora Cave

This marvel of nature created by the sea currents of two thousand years is a network of rock formations given its name from the amphorae-encrusted ceiling of one of the caves.

In particular, beginner divers – or the more timid - will enjoy the mostly sandy, flat surface of the site that offers an experience of cave with reef and offers plenty of natural light.

And when evening sets, the mood of the topography changes, with numbers of shrimps, lobsters, black sea cucumbers and cuttlefish venturing out, making the site perfect for night diving too.

At the deepest part of the dive are meadows of Posidonia seagrass where pearly razorfish in iridescent gold and red tones make their home, and sometimes stingray, whilst scorpionfish hide among the seaweed.
Other marine life to spot includes bream, damselfish, hermit crabs, moray eels, octopi and wrasse.
