Description

In front of the bay of Denidorm, this small triangular island has a length of 350 m and 260 m wide. 
It is cliffy, barren, and reddish.

It is separated from the coast about 2.5 MN.

The island is a marine protected area.

This is a great place for scuba diving because of the wide variety of ecosystems present.

A flat, whitish, and rocky shoal, with a least depth of 5.8m, extends 200m in a NNE to SSW direction and should be given a wide berth by deep draft vessels. This shoal lies 0.2 mile S of this island.

A light is shown from a tower, 4m high, standing on the island.

Face à la baie de Denidorm, cette petite île triangulaire a une longueur de 350 m sur 260 m de large. 
Elle est escarpée et rougeâtre.

Elle est séparée de la côte d'environ 2,5 MN.

L'île est une aire marine protégée.

C'est un lieu privilégié pour la plongée sous-marine en raison de la grande variété des écosystèmes présents.

Un haut-fond plat, de couleur blanchâtre et rocheux, à une profondeur minimale de 5,8 m, s'étend sur 200m dans une direction NNE à SSW et peut fournir un bon mouillage. Ce banc s'étend à 0,2 MN de l'île.

Un feu se trouve sur l'île en haut d'une tour de 4 m de haut.
