Formentor Island

In the quiet bay of Formentor, there is a small island only about 50m from the shore. It is uninhabited, apart from seagulls and small trees. Underwater, it is less barren, with a gully running into the island and a lovely swim through. Once we anchor, drop down to 12 m and follow a wall round on your right hand side. Look in the crevasses for Moray eel and Grouper. Once round the wall you will find the swimthrough which is a regular haunt of Barracuda and reasonably sized Bream. On the return check the gully for octopus and the occasional scorpionfish. There is a wreck of a small yacht a little way off the point.
