This shoal, rather deep is characterized by a granitic backdrop that goes down from the top at 34 to 49 of the sandy bottom that surrounds it.
Splits along the vertical walls are colonized by sponges and very different fauna from each other. Groupers and dentices are fixed guests of these waters and thanks to the favorable conditions of the current it is not rare even encounter with a few specimens of tuna.
