Long Description:
«This is one of the most famous cave diving spots on the island of Sal. You can choose from three entry points but the easiest is situated at 26m. After passing through the opening, a huge cathedral-like space guides you up to 7m.

The bottom of the cave is littered with ammunition dumped here many years ago by soldiers. The highlight of this dive site is the strong light, which beams through the broken top of the cave to illuminate the inside.

Here you can enjoy the fantastic spectacle of light and shadow play. If the sun is directly above the opening on the surface, and there are no clouds, the inside of the cave is pattered with light like a laser show. It is even possible to surface for a while for a breath of fresh air.»

Depth range: 7 - 36 m
