The Dive: 
The bottom is covered with large rocks initially the depth is approximately 5 metres and drops rapidly to 32 metres. When you swim in a southerly direction a huge rocky labyrinth like formation offers hiding for large Dusky Perches and Breams. A sandy gravel covered area follows. The bottom of all other areas starts at 10m dropping more or less rapidly down to a depth of 40 metres. Large weed covered rocks offer ideal hiding for fishes and octopus.

Diving in south westerly direction one meets upon a Second World War plane wreckage in a depth of 35 metres. After the war the British dumped war equipment into the sea near the plateau, some of which has already been discovered. But until today one still finds trucks and such things down there.
