It’s a typical reef consisting of low rocky outcrops, on a sandy bottom, off the today’s Cape Bruzzano, the ancient Cape Zephirium, which was the first landing point of the Greek colonists.
Among the rocky walls there are sedentary fishes and many invertebrates, although well hidden. The most common species is the grouper, thanks to whose this dive site has earned the definition of “reef of the groupers“. On the sandy bottom, characterized by a beautiful light color, there are areas with Posidonia oceanica, within the leaves of which a rich fauna is well hidden.
