Dives on Elba: Corbella Islet
Depth: 0-45 meters
Difficulty level: medium
This island is located at the Capo Stella, halfway between Golfo Stella and Golfo di Lacona. It's a site that offers different types of diving.
The slope of South-East is the most challenging, but full of life with the chance to spot snapper, amberjack, sea eagles and white bream, and from about 32mt we meet an expanse of red gorgonians very large and fascinating.
The part of North-West is less deep but equally rich in fish.
Around 16mt we find an old engine that often offers shelter to moray eels and octopus. Diving towards offshore is easy to meet various species of marine fauna that very often live in this site.
Notice that, only in this site, we have the opportunity to see the famous Killer Algae (Caulerpa taxifolia) which is usually located in the Atlantic Ocean, but also that proliferates here.
