4.- Macro lens: nudibranchs

Unexpected colours and shapes

Nudibranchs, often called blennies or sea slugs, are shell-less snails, highly abundant in the Mediterranean, standing out for their very bright colours and with surprising combinations, which make them considered as the “butterflies of the sea”.

Finding nudibranchs is often a surprise and makes many divers count these findings as special moments and they are always on the look out to see new species with different shapes and colours.

Our recommended dive: Punta Santa Anna

Recommended depth
8-15 m
Maximum depth
16 m
All levels

Santa Anna point is one of the dives located furthest south along the Costa Brava and one of the most characteristic of Blanes and can be done by boat and from the beach. Its seabed offers such a large variety that it always provides us with a new memory to cherish, especially if we love stumbling across unexpected small organisms such as nudibranchs.

It is a shallow dive with a mixture of rocky, posidonia and sandy bottoms that stretches from the Santa Anna point to the breakwater of the Blanes fishing port.

The dive begins at the Santa Anna point visiting the rocks that extend inland and then comes back towards the breakwater, passing over the posidonia seabed on the way.

It is suitable for all levels, although it is sometimes exposed to southern and easterly winds, in which case, it will be necessary to postpone the dive.

Being a shallow dive with a mixture of sandy, posidonia and rocky bottoms, it is an ideal place to do some long, leisurely dives while changing the scope of observation and search for nudibranchs, small organisms, fish of a thousand colours, inhabitants of the posidonia and the sandy bottoms with a macro lens as well as some schools of fish such as the salemas which will top the dive off.

As always, we follow the basic rules of diving and avoid touching the bottom so as not to harm its inhabitants.
