Si beau mais parfois dangereux - Un très beau site proche du port et des quantités d'espèces à admirer.
Par contre, le récif n'offre pas d'abri lorsqu'il y a du courant, et on a vite d'être emporté et de se retrouver à contre-courant. Prudence donc lorsqu'il y a du courant, nous venons d'échapper à une plongée qui aurait pu tourner au désastre.

Fish soup at Pilles - This is another great divesite in the islas hormigas marine park! It has so many fish here at certain times of the year that its like diving in fish soup! Around august september the numerous groupers, dentex, tuna and other predatory fish feed on the huge shoals of fry creating a huge bait ball that you can be caught in the middle of with a spectacluar show! this site is a must dive if you visit la manga! one of my favourites!
