To practice Snorkeling you only need a pair of glasses diving, fins and breathing tube. Also, you can tour the following six routes: Les Basetes, La Fustera, Els Pinets, LLobella, L´Advogat, and El Baladrar.

The depth can vary between 3 and 8 meters and the time to do the tour can last between 20 minutes in the Els Pinets cove up to the 35 minutes needed to travel the Platgeta L’Advocat.

The bottom grows progressively and very soon it is about -6 meters and looks perfectly transparent. The calm sea helps this visibility and allows the powerful morning sun rays to penetrate strongly.

By that, as soon as you jump into the water and put your head and look at the bottom will open A smile that will hardly fit in the diving mask. They will be surrounded by fishes.

The posidonia meadow is lush, in very good condition and strolled by huge banks of salps between which the human body and marine beauty can be mixed. The background is bright and alternates the sandy clearings where you can give the opportunity to witness the silhouette of a marine animal such as the stripe that are very dear to children for being such elegant beings with their swimming movements.
