Caló d'en Monjo (also called Caló d'es Monjo), or ""Monk's Bay"" as it's translated into English, is a small bay located 3km/1.8mi from Peguera. Locked between two cliffs, this cove is popular as a good snorkeling spot, but is also interesting for its underwater sites. A 50m/164ft tunnel begins at a depth of 18m/59ft, and has an abundance of marine life inside. After exiting the tunnel, divers find a small cave where conger eels can often be encountered. The dive site is known for having many large rocks at the bottom, so divers should proceed with caution and take safety measures. Despite this and the presence of medium-strength currents, the Caló d'en Monjo dive site can be suitable even for entry-level divers.

When to go

The best visibility (up to 30-35m/98-115ft) and the warmest water (25C/77F) are from May to October, which is considered to be the most favorable time for exploring this dive site.

What to see

The most frequently seen inhabitants of the site are nudibranchs, octopi, seahorses, cardinalfish, moray eels, groupers, and conger eels.
