Reserva Marina Cabo de San Antonio – Scuba Xàbia (Jávea)

Reserva Marina Cabo de San Antonio

Before arriving at the Lighthouse of St Anthony’s Cap we will find a cove in which a buoy announces the limit of the Marine Reserve. We can tie it to the boat and descend to about 16 meters deep, to a bottom formed by large scattered rocks and sand. Remember that this is a protected area and prior authorisation is required for diving. In the same way, it offers an exceptionally beautiful and lively environment, with species that are difficult to see in other places such as the sea cicada, dorada, conger, and the curious formations of white gorgonia. It also has the advantage that the irregular dispersion of the rocks and the moderate depth allows us to almost improvise any route; Anyway our proposal is to gain depth in the opposite direction to the coast. Then, to the right, there will be a long rock formation that surrounds us to follow 270° course and find new formations of cliffs in which life abounds in the form of corvinas, brooks or grouper.
