Ponta da Passagem is a diving site located near Cape Espichel, which exposes it to sudden changes of waves and currents. Divers are advised to dive in this location only on days when the sea is calm. The site has a complex geological structure and it has a very interesting underwater passage along the shoreline, skirting a vertical wall. It is a great diving spot for underwater photography.
