How Hot is this Dive Site? click a star to rate it
L’Estarti can be overcrowded, cattle boat diving at peak times so avoid holidays and weekends in high season. Dutch, Belgian, German, and French divers have already discovered L’Estarti and flock from their inland cities at holidays and weekends.

The marine reserve takes 280 divers per hour at peak periods with the various dive operations having allotted slots on specified sites and times – a bit like a landing slot at Heathrow. However, the system works. The multitudinous Gorgonia are not kicked to bits as you might expect, though they are more profuse and pristine at greater depths.
