Pedra do Leão
The Pedra do Leão is a rock formation that out of the water has the shape of a lying lion. The rock underwater has a large opening that allows you to cross from one side to the other, a place where often you can find large schools of sea breams, mackerel and other fish. The orography of the bottom around Pedra do Leão is very varied with large rock formations creating several passages. In spring and summer the bottom is covered with kelp forming a true underwater garden, octopuses being a common inhabitant. For freediving or snorkeling it is an excellent place because we have points of interest from 2 to 15 meters deep. It is a place without current, with visibilities between 5 and 10 meters.
The Batelão is a place near the breakwater of the port of Sesimbra where the ship that supported the construction of the breakwater sank. It is a place that allows you to visit this small wreck where octopuses and spider crab are common, but also to visit the tetrapods that the breakwater is made of. These structures serve as a natural reef where several species of fish find shelter, such as large schools of bogues and mackerel. For freediving or snorkeling, it is a very versatile site because it has points of interest from 2 to 15 meters deep. It is a place without current, with visibilities between 5 and 10 meters.
