Just few minutes from the Marciana Marina port, left behind us Punta della Madonna and heading west we approach on the west side of the tip.

We will start our path by going down a posidonia meadow, among which it is not uncommon to see nice gransees that move stealthily.

Leaving behind us the posidonia we will reach the wall that from the surface through a long landslide drops vertically up to a maximum depth of 42 meters.

The wall, rich in yellow gorgonies, sponges and bushes, is the ideal dwelling for herring fish such as clumps and moray eels.

The slope area, on the other hand, that we will swipe on our return, will give us a meeting with several octopus holes and with fast-moving groupers.
