The Setares II ship (la Gabarra) belonged to the “Compañía Minera de Setares” and was in charge of transporting ore from Mioño to Altos Hornos de Bizkaia. On one of those trips (in 1957 or 1958) it sank in a storm. Today, his remains lie in front of Playa de la Arena at a depth of 29 metres. The ship's frames, winches, nets and little else remain on a sandy bottom where a large amount of life takes refuge; conger eels, lobsters, San Pedro fish, mojarras, fanecas, etc. For immersion, at least Advanced or equivalent is recommended.
