The landscape is unique here: there are rocky formings that turn into deserted sandy beaches. Hundreds of species of fish, corals, and molluscs dwell in the local waters. The sea that washes the sea is crystal clear: the visibility reaches 30 meters, and diving depth is up to 40 meters. You can see caves, tunnels, a pile of stones. Reefs are a perfect place for underwater photographers. Rocks and walls are covered with soft red corals and algae. The most significant part of the marine territory is covered with coral gardens, inhabited by molluscs and fish.
