Characteristics

Description

Located between Marines de Sisco and Erbalunga, this point is well known to divers.
Cape Sagro is an anchorage where the ancient Roman fleet landed the goods for this part of Cap Corse.

This site is of outstanding beauty and it is not unusual to see diving teams of experienced divers in full photographic exploration. Ideal for comfortable diving school or exploration diving and for all levels!

The Circus: superb series of rocks, at least for two levels experienced. The place takes its name from a set of circular rock that starts a background of 38 meters and up to 44 meters. There are some nice size grouper, pretty mostelles and all Mediterranean species. In some seasons you meet spider crabs
U Rigone: rocks 35 meters for levels 2 and older, heavily colonized by a family of groupers who cohabit nicely with conger, moray eels and brown meager.
The P47 Miomo: an American fighter in a perfect state of preservation, 20 meters deep. Many brown meager, groupers, badèches in residence under the wings.
The Insuma "Gunboat" a luxurious yacht of 35 meters long requisitioned by the Germans to hunt submarines. The wreck lies at a depth of 45 meters, straight and in good condition. The gun mount is still there, its two propellers, anchors and their chains too.
