Diving suitable for everyone: from children to the disabled, up to experienced divers! La Piscinetta del Carpino: we are inside the Carpino bay about 10 minutes by boat from the Diving. An immersion dedicated to children, the disabled and anyone who likes to enjoy the Mediterranean biodiversity. A closed bay called “La Piscina” and an oceanic Posidonia meadow where you can go in search of some Pinna Nobilis. At the end of the dive, for those who wish to, an underground channel about 20 meters long between 3 and 8 meters deep, simple, bright, with an exit point halfway through, full of nudibranchs, shrimps, groupers and much more yet. La Parete del Ciongolo: 5 diving spots on the wall between 5 and 42 meters deep. It is the most fascinating wall in the area in the San Nicola Arcella area. At greater depths we almost always find lobsters and some ravines and caves have colors worthy of the warmest seas. Isola di Dino and Isola di Cirella: they are the two largest islands of Calabria, both 6 miles away from the Village, the first heading north and the second south. Diving in the caves of the island of Dino are very famous, even if on two decidedly opposite levels of difficulty. Grotta Dino a cave for speleo divers and instead Grotta Azzurra is already accessible with a first level license. Many sports proposals are available in the village, with the nautical center and the various sports facilities available to guests, such as basketball, volleyball, five-a-side football… The location of the village is excellent for visiting the surroundings with an excursion to the Riace Bronzes, or for visit the Pollino National Park.
