Brings you the best marine ecotourism experiences in Europe

Just like its name suggests - the Gorgonians Garden - sea fans from the most varied colours and sizes are the most remarkable feature of this scuba diving site in Sesimbra. The complex bottom morphology consists of an extended rocky line that describes a falling curved trajectory towards the East, from the shore. Its unique location creates diverse habitat types where benthonic species thrive, surrounded by gorgonians, sponges and anemonae.
