Little count


Steam freighter sunk in 1973 when hitting Punta Rasca. Three years after its shipwreck, the Punta Rasca lighthouse was built. It was carrying cement and you can still see the bags of cement stacked and petrified by the water. It has now become an artificial reef that provides habitat for numerous species such as trumpet fish, barracuda, octopus, rays, and fireworms. Very difficult access due to the orography of the land, although it is close to the shore.
