The seabed has vertical walls with fissures, corresponding to small caves.

Characteristic fauna includes the Mycteroperca fusca, the Sphyraena viridensis, the Felimare tricolor, the Caretta caretta and the Tursiops truncates, and the dominant flora consists of brown algae, (such as Zonaria tournefortii) and red algae (such as Corallina officinalis).
