The Pylon’s shoal is one of the most close points on the edge of the protected area of Pianosa’s Marine Park.

The dive takes place along a split that starts from the top at a depth of about 24 meters and goes on to reach 35 meters deep and is characterized by a strong presence of fish of holes such as scorpion fish, bushes and moray eels as well as lobsters of good dimensions.

Small rocks, a few meters away from the shoal, give shelter to large specimens of sea breans and at sometimes to eagle rays.
