The Marine Protected Area of Capo Gallo

Isola delle Femmine

The Italian Ministry of the Environment in 2002 established the Marine Protected Area of Capo Gallo-Isola delle Femmine. The area of the marine reserve is divided into zones A‚ B and C referring to the different levels of protection. The presence of a rich and varied flora and fauna identifies the particularity of this environment making it suggestive and exciting. It is easy to observe‚ in their natural environment‚ specimens of groupers‚ ducts‚ amberjacks‚ bream‚ damsels with bright colors‚ scorpion fish‚ moray eels‚ lobbers and hidden in the small hollows of the rocks‚ starfish‚ salpes‚ octopusses‚ sponges ‚ sea hares‚ and for especially for underwater photographers a variety of nudibranchs and snails. But there’s more: the morphology of the seabed and dramatic landscapes are stunning and create plays of lights that color the background of your dive scenery. In addition the waters of Isola delle Femmine and its surroundings are a real archaeological heritage. Here there are in fact remains of all kinds‚ from finds from the Greek and Roman ages‚ to more recent finding. Evasioni Blu Diving Resorts at Isola delle Femmine, Palermo, offers numerous dive sites, at variable depths, with the possibility of planning different itineraries at almost every dive spot.
