The average depth is 12m. On the spot is a monument of the virgin, which has been placed by the founder of diving club Bendor, called CIP (Centre International de Plong?e). Incredible rock formations located on rather small depth constitute a perfect training place adapted to all levels of diver trainings. The statue is located 30 m to the west of the west coast of Bendor island. This place is characterized by a rich marine flora and fauna.
