CAP DE BEGUR

The rocky point located in front of the Aiguablava beach is Cap de Begur. This formation is the point that goes deeper into the peninsula in the Mediterranean and therefore makes it a place very exposed to the currents and with great wealth.
The dive consists of jumping near the north wall of the cape and following the rocky bars in the form of 3 walls that surround the cape from north to south, the first being the deepest (about 37 meters) formed by red gorgonians, the second one ( which is around 30) formed by calcareous and coralligenous rock and the third covered with green calcareous algae. Depending on the route to choose, it is necessary to take into account the accumulation of nitrogen, so it is a dive for Advanced divers. The dive is done adrift, so that the boatman picks up the divers once they have removed the signaling buoy and emerge on the surface.As a fauna, it is possible to see some lobster, large brótolas, groupers, moray eels, some large nudis and, in spring and early summer, some sunfish or the passage of sea eagles.
