Scuba diving here is more suited toexpert divers because the route is very long so it is vital that you calculate how long you will stay at the bottom very carefully. Watch out for passing ferries and large boats.
The sand bank is about 1 mile from the Island of Topi and about 200 metres from the Capo Vita sandbank.
The sea bed is made up of rocks mixed with sea weed and the water is crystal clear due to the fact that there are many currents here.
From a platform of sand down to a depth of approximately 25 m, there is a vertical wall of rocks that plunges right down into the deep, blue water, and you will see sea breams peeping out of the cracks therein.
On your way down you can see the sandy seabed through the cracks with a large anchor dating back to the Middle Ages of about 5 m lying on the sand between the rocks, at a depth of 42 m more or less.
The rocks where the anchor lies are rich in parazoanthus with large lobsters and crayfish living in the cracks.
The seabed is full of life: you will see numerous sea cicadas, redfish, crabs and moray eels, and if you look down into the sand very closely you will even see stingrays.
As you swim back up make sure you look across the deep, blue water and you will very likely spy the odd pelagic fish.
