Home GUIDED DIVES THE CAVE OF THE LION
91014 Scopello - Castellammare del Golfo
The Lion cave has three wide "rooms" and two entrances and inside there are a great number of luminescent shrimps.
Spirobis worms line the bottom of the cave and a beautiful a Pinna Nobilis shell has grown up in the middle of the cavern.
The side walls are covered with sponges, madrepores, sea roses and false coral.
On the left hand side of the cave there is a deep crack, inhabited by "corvine" fish and starfish; and on the right hand side a passage, about 5 m. long, that leads to the surface.
Follow the passage, and it brings you up to three wide rooms of extraordinary beauty above the sea level.
