PONTA DA OLIVEIRA (STEEP WALL)

The Ponta da Oliveira - vantage point - is not only worth a visit above water with its beautiful wide views over the sea, but only reveals its true beatuy under water.
Along the face you will find small vegetation and all sorts of creatures which seem to stay still. Spider carbs, starfish and damselfish are just a few of the visitors. The lava flow extends down to 28 m depth and there is a magnificent white club-tipped anemone hidden with cleaner shrimp ... the beatuy is in the eye of the beholder and you should bring a weakness for details to this dive spot.
