This cave is made up of volcanic tubes. It was declared a Special Area of Conservation as it is a unique and highly vulnerable ecosystem. Despite being one of the largest caves in the archipelago, the bed of the tunnel is covered in small arches, making it safe to explore.
Swimming with interesting species
The name of this dive comes from the peculiar sponges shaped like brains that inhabit its waters, which are included in the Canary Islands Catalogue of Endangered Species. The most remarkable feature of this cave is its fauna, with species that generally live in the shadows, such as clownfish, Atlantic reef lobsters, black stingrays, Canarian lobsters and catalufas.
