Mediterrani underwater walks: Banyuls sur Mer (1/2)

This summer, every week in Mediterrani, we will equip ourselves with flippers, a mask and a snorkel to explore the shallow seabeds that border the coastal towns of our department and thus discover the marine biodiversity that is found just a few meters from the shore.

1/ For this first splash today, where are you taking us Pascal?

The Grosse Island site is located in Banyuls, at the northern limit of the Marine Reserve.

2/ That’s it, we’re off, we’re taking our first strokes; what are the different underwater landscapes that we can encounter on the underwater course that you are offering us today in Banyuls sur mer?

Underwater we find the schists characteristic of the Côte Vermeille

3/ What are the characteristic marine species that we can come across throughout this short snorkeling trip?

Sea urchins, which are very present on the Grosse Island site, consume the algae that grow on the rocks.

Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to come across a red starfish.
