Scuba diving in Belltower
The Belltower dive site, located off the southeast coast of Menorca close to the shore of Cap d’En Font, is considered to be one of the best dive sites in Menorca. The dive site offers an opportunity to explore a beautiful Belltower cavern that is also known as Tom’s Belfry. Divers have the choice to enter the cavern through two different entrances leading into a large chamber, which penetrates deep into the rocky shore of Cap d’En Font. For the most part of their dive, divers explore the majestic cavern until they start ascending along the back wall of the chamber and find themselves in a large air bell. Here they can breath some fresh air and admire the display of stalactites while floating on the surface.
When to go
The Belltower dive site is open for diving all year round. However, the best diving conditions with an average water temperature of 26C/79F are from April to October. During the winter the water temperature drops to a chilly 15C/59F.
What to see
While exploring the majestic chamber, divers will have a chance to spot some interesting marine creatures, including colourful nudibranchs, crabs, lobsters, moray and conger eels, and octopi. Then, rising to the surface, they will see beautiful stalactites and stalagmites on the top of the chamber.
