Isla del Descubridor (57 m de haut) se situe tout près de la côte, à 1 MN à l'WSW du cap de La Nao.

C'est un site de plongée profonde, avec des pentes et des formations rocheuses qui créent d'excellents refuges pour une variété de vie marine.

L'étroit passage qui la sépare de la côte ne peut pas être utilisé.
