The average distance between the bottom and the ceiling is about 4 or 5 meter, but there are lower zones. No hard restrictions.

You can easily park your car in Carrer de Sa Marina street, where you'll find a passage leading to the shore. After a small 50 walk on this alley, you'll find a stairway leading to the water. They are constructed by the neighbours are leading to cement docks, from which you can easily jump into the water. This docks have metallic ladder that you can use to get in or out of the water, but the owner use to take them out of the water when the summer season finishes. Out of the summer season, you'll have to climb the rocks to get on the cement docks, and this can be a bit difficult by moderate swell. You can start the dive when jumping into the water or either swim for about 50 m to the open sea, and when arriving to the cove's end, turn right, SW, and start your dive by following the wall to the SW. Max depth found 24 m. Interesting wall dive with very big boulders fallen from the cliffs at the bottom, which are amazing passages and lots of shelter for marine life. When getting far from the wall, the bottom becomes completely flat and is made of sand, so the most beautiful way of diving this site is by following the wall next to the bottom. Although the cove is very narrow, you may find some boats inside during the summer, so be ware of them Carrer de sa Marina St., Cala Egos

Immersion in the tunnel and the cave of Cala Fornells. First Cupidor accessed from the tunnel, is passed through a S-shaped tunnel about 10 or 15m long, inside some fish and various species of shrimps and crabs. Upon leaving the tunnel you have to be very alert and immediately turn left, go right, do not advance or 1 meter, if not reach the correct site. After we found a few meters in a small cave entrance, capacity for about 5 divers and can get to the surface (mind your head) is very nice the overhead light beam entering the cave. You can go to the back of the cave but there is much to do and there comes a moment that the bottles are hooked. The entrance to the tunnel is watching from the sea beach, on the left, there is clearly a hollowness and under the sea this entry. Cala fornells is also known as Cala fornells cueva y tunel.
Cala Gran

In Cala D'Or, go to "Cala Gran", and look for "Carrer Cabrera" (Cabrera Street). Go by this street to its end, and park your car there, in front of the shore. Walk to the rocks and you'll easily find a concrete alley at your right, leading to the sea after a very short walk. There is a stainless-steel ladder in the summertime that makes going in and out of the water really easy (take care with big waves when rough sea), but it's usually removed during the winter. Anyway, it's easy to get in and out of the water without using the ladder when the sea is fine. From here, you can do THREE DIFFERENT DIVES: - Dive 1: Just after jumping into the water, depth is about 17 m., and the average depth of this dive is about 20 m. (max depth: 26 m.). Following the wall, head to your right (S) and folloow it to turn the little cape that is the Eastern cape of Cala Gran (see map). Before turning it, you'll find a cave with a very big entrance: very large cave with no ramifications, about 20 m long from the entrance to its end. Ceiling's height is about 6 m, but there's a lot of silt in the bottom, take care. Exiting the cave, you'll find some big rocks in front of you with a passage between them leading to the bottom (deepest point of this dive: 26 m) After the cave, always by following the wall, you can continue diving S to turn the Cala Gran's cape, and you'll find lots of rocks with passages among them (here depth is around 15 - 20 m), used as lots of shelters by the marine fauna. LOTS of boats during the summer!!! Sometimes, currents generated by thermoclines. - Dive 2: (max depth: 32 m) Just after jumping into the water you must head underwater (MANY BOATS in the surface: take care!!!) to 100º ( aprox. ESE)for about 275 m. You may dive at a depth of about 10 m. to avoid the boats on the surface and to avoid consuming lots of air as the depth is about 25 m or more and for there's absolutely nothing interesting to see in the bottom until you arrive to a cut, depth 32 m. with interesting landscape. 1 x 18L or 2 x 10L tanks recommended if doing this dive by diving from the shore. - Dive 3: (avg. depth about 20 m.) From the starting point, dive to your left, heading NE and following the wall: lots of rocks in the bottom, wall dive. In Cala D'Or, go to "Cala Gran", and look for "Carrer Cabrera" (Cabrera Street). Go by this street to its end, and park your car there, in front of the shore.
