Scoglio Palumbo

Spot 16 - Favignana Island

  • Difficulty Level: easy

Diving activity suitable also for beginners.
The cargo ship (transporting salt) called "Carmelo Lo Porto" sank in 1971 after colliding with the submerged section of the cliff. Among the rests, at a depth of -18 m, the engine room and the cabin can be recognized. The wreckage lying on the bottom for years are populated by congers and moray eels, but it is not difficult to find some small-size groupers. Around the wreck, a large plain of Posidonia makes it possible to sight some brown meagers.
