From the port of Denia we take the “Las Rotas” road and drive until the end of it (about four miles) where we will find a small parking area.

Here you will see some rocks forming a small natural swimming pool with crystal clear water.

We will take our equipment and walk down to the sea. It is strongly advised to sort out all equipment near the water, as the rocks on the small passage towards the water are very irregular and are a danger for ourselves and also our equipment (bcd, wetsuit, dry suit).

In the water we swim until the exit the small natural pool and where the depth will be around 3 meters, this will be our dive starting point.

Underwater we will follow the wall that will see on our right and we go East.

In the innumerable cracks and crevices of the wall we can see OctopusSpirographsSpoon Worms and sometimes with luck even Moray Eel. With luck we can also see Sting Ray on the sandy bottom that is on our left.

At a certain point we will encounter another wall on our left side and we will continue our dive to the East until we leave the walls behind and we begin to see a sandy bottom with some isolated rocks, here the depth will be around 11 meters and this will be our return point. In our return journey the wall will be on the left hand side and we need to keep going in a Westerly direction until we reach the starting point of our dive.

Diving Valencia recommends this dive site as it is one of the easier dive sites but the marine life is abundant and always makes the dive interesting.
