The Immersion

We will sail northeast for about 20 minutes, allowing us to enjoy the views of the coast when leaving from the Dive Center Palamós.

We will pass through Cala Margarita, where we will see the typical fishermen’s shacks. In them they kept their boats and utensils that today have become summer houses. It is a landscape with a special charm.

We will pass through Castell beach, which has various peculiarities that make this beach a unique stronghold. This is a considerable extension. Located between fields and forests, without any type of urbanization on its margins.

But the fact is that Castell also has a series of historical remains of great value.

This is how we find the Poblado Ibérico in one of the ends of the cove. On your left as you look out to sea, we will see the point of Sa Cobertera.

This is built on an original settlement from the 15th century. VI B.C., which we know was actively inhabited by this civilization until the s. I AD

Route

This dive site located to the east of the Formigues Islands is a deep and technical dive where we can find a diversity of abundant flora and fauna, its color makes it a colorful and pleasant dive.

We will start the immersion descending through the cape until reaching 25 mt, from here we can dive towards the open sea where we will choose a certain course towards small promontories with the typical visors that house large groupers, and the typical rock fauna stuck in their cracks.

We can also navigate to the east surrounding the base of the mountain enjoying the walls of gorgonians up to 43mt, this whole area is full of life since due to its depth its fauna is not easily extracted.

A third option is to head towards the Formigues Islands that we can see from our boat and from which the underwater course to follow will be established.

It is a shallow dive ideal for beginners and trainees
