Underwater attractions

Brsec reef is a picturesque place located 80 meters from the shore, near the Brsec town. It is an underwater hill of 60 meters long, which the minimum depth is 7 meters. The southern side is vertical and has from 7 up to 45 meters of depth; however the north side is up to 23 meters. This peak is located on the sandy bottom, so it became a settlement for many species of fish (e.g. scorpionfish, red lionfish, pufferfish, sea basses) and sea snails. Good visibility usually begins on the level of 12 meters. It is worthwhile also to swim about 50 meters in the direction of coast – there is a small cave. Brsec is best to visit at the end of season (which lasts from May to October), when the water temperature remains high, and the place isn’t already besieged by tourists.
