Exploring with Mask, Fin & Snorkel

Our 300 meters of seafront are sheltered by an exquisite coral reef. Come and explore this underwater world of breathtaking beauty.

Their particularly calm and crystal clear waters, sheltered from the ocean sea, have allowed the development of fine and colorful corals, around which a vibrant aquatic life revolves. Rising in open water, the reef can be reached with mask and snorkel, only a few fin stroke away from our wooden deck.

The water depth is constant over the entire area (3-4m). You will find small reefs, covered with turquoise, golden yellow or carmine red sponges, constituting a particularly colorful ecosystem.

Conical and massive corals cling to the walls, and serve as privileged shelters for the brittle stars that have colonized the area. Small groups of sergeant majors seem to be on guard, ignoring the wreaths and dogtooth snappers who patrol around the reef.
