and caverns over and underwater, with incomparable variety and richness
and crystal clear waters , offer photographic and filming spots
really peculiar and of extreme beauty.
Island is geologically connected to the Flegrean Coast by a large
underwater platform, that extend itself for numerous square kilometers
largely still inexplored, of which depths, easily reached by divers,
vary from -4 m to -50 m. The fragmented nature of the rocky seabed,
that is typical of the western flows, gives a favourable presence
of a extraordinary fauna and luxuriant underwater flora.
vulcanic agglomerates that you can find on the downsloping seabed
westover are interrupted by large areas of thickgrowing forests
of Posidonia oceanica and downy meadows of Cymodocea nodosa,
that give natural shelter to the most various and often rare species
of bentonic and permanent sea-life. The cliffs that characterize
the east-side jut down to unfathomable dephts, favouring the presence
of oceanfish and colonies of small organisms, fed by currents of
different origin, that lap the Island.
