Es Pallaret also known as the hay stack because of its shape, Is near the Island of Sa Conillera which Is just of the coast of San Antonio. Near the Punta de Sa Torre you can dive down here and head to the South West side if the Islet which is about 12 meters deep. The rocky seabed continues to towards a steep decent which are the walls of the islet.
This scuba diving route is about going around the islet in one direction or the other direction, this depends on the current if there is one during the time of your dive, swim against the current if there is one it will be easier on the return swim and safer. Swimming with the shelf on your left side you should gain depth and at around 23 meters you should see the remains of an old motor scooter (Vespa) that has been covered by incrustations and organisms. The scooter has been down here for over 15 years and is well mixed into the landscape of the bottom.
Continuing your swim you will come across an endless selection of objects that are interesting, with many hollows, fissures and other hiding places waiting for you to discover. You will come across eels, brown meagre and even spiny lobsters. The rock floor here is covered with coral and sponge colonies with the offset of colorful sea-slugs.
The shelf here drops to around 40 meters and it’s advised to stay at a reasonable depth. Its recommended to maintain a reasonable depth to take in and enjoy the rich biodiversity that gives this area its wonderful unique colors. As your scuba dive draws to an end reduce the depth accordingly as you return to the spot you dived in from the boat.
