This is a popular shore dive site. During they day there is not much life to be seen and it is used mainly as a training site because of a small protected rocky bay, easy entry and exit, and fair visibility. However, if you can find a Turkish guide to take you at night (required by Turkish law), then you are bound to see lots of interesting life. The dive starts in a rocky bowl, and you can go out to a mini wall that drops to a sandy bottom. We have seen large squid, octopi, flatworms, various nudibranchs, sleeping fish, multiple crabs, Spanish lobster, anemones, etc... Depths range from 8 feet to 50 feet. There is a small dive facility at White Cliffs, but I have never used it.
