Photo Spot Details

The Mariana Platform is an abandoned fish farm sunken between -12m and -35m. Its massive and metallic structure is partially collapsed, and its twisted parts create a fascinating and phantasmagoric scenario, just taken out of a terror film.

It attracts a variety of marine species (barracudas, scorpionfish, congers, groupers, morays…and even dolphins!), creating an oasis of life in the middle of a sand plain, helping to recover the natural environmental balance.
