Cala Cicale

Zone C - Diving Spot with buoy where private diving activities are allowed

Diving         

    The site
    Close to the southern cliff of Tavolara, the site is served by a buoy. From the foot of the submerged cliff reaching about the 10 meters of depth, several collapsed boulders – some of which really huge – are scattered throughout a plateau slightly sloping down. The route develops between the plateau and the upper edge of the grassland of Posidonia, at 20 meter of depth. Diving is allowed for private persons in the times fixed by the regulations.

    Main features
    The name of the site derives from the widespread presence of Mediterranean slipper lobster (Scyllarides latus, in Italian "cicale") from late spring to early summer. A protected species, the Mediterranean slipper lobster comes from deep environments to reproduce itself and finds in the richness of the site ravines ideal conditions. Created by collapsed boulders and by the natural fragmentation of the rocks, ravines and cavities house pre-coralligenous environments, while the upper parts of the rocks are covered with photophilic seaweeds.
    It is possible to carry out several routes along which you will have the possibility to appreciate the abundance of fish with shoals of common two-banded seabreams and white seabreams, brown meagers, and black seabreams.
    On the boulders next to the cliff, big flathead gray mullets carry out quick explorations, while offshore it is possible to meet groups of barracudas you can easily approach.
