Isla Portixol Norte – Scuba Xàbia (Jávea)

Isla Portitxol

This dive, to the north of the island, usually presents moderate or strong currents, which gives us the opportunity to find large banks of fish such as castanets, sea bream and spits. The dive begins at the east end where we will find an anchoring zone marked by large rocks. Here, reaching the 18 meters of maximum depth, we will find an edge of rocks followed by great stones between which they inhabit grouper and octopus. It is also worth looking up because it is possible for majestic moon fish to pass over our heads. It is recommended to travel the entire north face of the island at maximum depth to start the return between the large rocks that are glued to the wall. Here you can enjoy the presence of abundant sponges and colorful anemones. In the area, nudibranchs of different species are frequent too, lending themselves to spectacular photos.
