CAR PILE

/ 3

Car Pile is known for its car wrecks. The cars were dumped here in the sixties. You come across wrecks to a depth of 50 meters. You can see complete car wrecks, but also all kinds of car parts such as exhausts, doors and tyres. Around 20 meters you will also find construction waste. Car Pile also consists of two drop-offs, sand channels and coral islands.

Particulars

Enter the water via the sandy beach. Swim out of the restricted swimming area and then turn left. The bottom immediately descends steeply. Look for the construction waste at 18 meters and the car wrecks between 28 and 50 meters. You first come across the wreck of a boat and then the car wrecks.

Warnings

Only experienced divers, deep dive site with a lot of current. Restricted swimming area for children.
