Underwater attractions

Galijola is a charming rock island located in the middle of sea, long to only 150 meters. Through its small size and flat landform it was a threat to swimming units. Therefore, the lighthouse was built in order to warn sailors against collision with the cliff. The most interesting diving site is about 100 meters to the south of island, where it is possible to get by boat. There is a wall covered by gorgonians and sponges, but the biggest attraction is a wonderful deep canyon of 50 meters. It is possible to observe rich underwater life, among others lobsters, various crustaceans, bait fish, and specimens of the larger ones.
