The area is located off the coast of the Municipality of Praia A Mare and S. Nicola Arcella. It features submerged cavities with concretions and it includes a geologically heterogeneous territory. Sedimentary rocks emerge within the site’s perimeter. The area is covered by meadows of Posidonia oceanica in good conservation status. The seabeds host the typical and unique Mediterranean fauna: damselfish, wrasses, dreamfishes, groupers and stony corals, which also find refuge in a particular submerged cave beneath the Dino Island’s promontory.
