Ustica Dead Man Point Dive
Low Difficulty – Depth 0/25 meters
Ustica Dead Man Point Dive, on the slopes of a breathtaking cliff overlooked by the Dead Man Point lighthouse, a wall dive, the steep rock ridge is to be explored inch by inch, an explosion of colors.
Dead Man Point Dive is characterized by a splendid colored wall where crustaceans, molluscs and nudibranchs find their perfect habitat. It is a simple itinerary, suitable for beginners and for anyone who wants to enjoy the beauties of the sea of Ustica.
Halfway along the length of the wall – at a depth of 25m – there is a large cave, not very penetrating, with a small tunnel whose walls are covered with shrimps, while on the sandy bottom the snouts swim sinuously. Moving your gaze from the wall into the blue you can spot large fish passing by, while the rocky bottom is densely inhabited by damselfish, thrushes, damsels, scorpion fish and white bream. The interior of the cove, where one still stands, is characterized by the alternation of boulders covered with sea urchins and posidonia. Dead Man Point is located in zone C of the Ustica Island Protected Marine Area.
The ancient lighthouse – If you have never visited it, I recommend that you go there. The Dead Man Point Lighthouse dates back to the 16th century and was built at the request of Andrea Conzaga with the aim of creating a refuge for the island’s population in the event of an enemy attack. It is located on a cliff almost 100 meters above the sea: the view is guaranteed
