Dive sites - detailed descriptions

1) Cala / housereef

We are rightly proud of our amazing house reef here at Stollis.
2 minutes walk from the dive base, along the sea front, past our sweet water shower, and a giant stride into one of the best kept secrets on the Costa Brava.

The protected swim and dive area (pictured) provides a rich and diverse playground for divers.
Want sand? - we’ve got it here, Rocks?, well yes . . Sea grass? yes that too, together with a host of man made environments that sea life love to colonise.
How about sea horses, octopus, spiny lobsters, a myriad of nudibranchs, and more fish than I have room to name . . . Getting the picture?

Whether you are a novice diver, an experienced photographer, or merely looking for a nice bimble around, you will love our house reef. Maximum depth 15 meters.
