Description dive spot:
One of the most beautiful reef diving places in the Rovinj area.
In the upper area in the middle of the island there is the entrance to a smaller cave at a depth of about 5 meters. Through a corridor you enter the central room of the cave, which is illuminated by an opening at the top by the sun. In the dark parts there are red starfish, dark sea cucumbers and schools of goatfish.
Another cave and a grotto are located at a depth of 7 to 16 meters. Here are countless gobies, swarms of bipedal bream, black bream and other small fish.
The two caves as well as the grotto are easy to dive.
At 26 to 30 meters there is an interesting wall.
