Underwater attractions

To the diving site it is possible to get only by boat. Average depth is 5 m. There is 160 meter long cave, finished with the cluster of gravel. The cave has gained its name from the Mediterranean Nun inhabiting it, before became an endangered species. The cave is quite narrow, its entrance has 5 m, and after swimming about 50 m it becomes even narrower. The bottom is covered by stones and rocks, and the biodiversity in this place is quite poor. In cracks decorating walls of the cave you can find sponges, shrimp and algae. This place is intended for advanced divers, due to its large depths and narrow space.
