Galiola

The mythical Galiola, a rock surrounded by sea, stretches in an east-west direction. It is about 150 m long but only some 50 m wide. In the middle of the rock is a lighthouse, erected to warn sailors of its existence. You anchor at about 100 m from the shore at a depth of 12 m, and then dive along the anchor rope to the edge of the wall at 15 m. The maximum diving dept is about 40 m. The congers, scorpion fish, the  shoals of greater amberjacks, measureless shoals of damsel fish, white sea breams, sardins, salemas, gilthead sea breams and different species of sea slugs can be seen. The holes and crevices are overgrow with stony corals , bryozoans and sponges.
