Scuba diving in Cave of Jeronimo
Jeronimo, or by other name, the Cove de Jeroni, is a famous dive site off the northeast coast of Mallorca. The dive begins with descending along the cliff, which goes vertically to 23m/75ft down. However, there is no need to descend so deep, as the entrance to the cave starts at a depth of only 2m/6.6ft and goes down almost to the sea bed, so the entrance is really big. After a short swim, divers find themselves inside a huge cavern with an airy vault on the top, where they can surface and observe an abundance of beautiful stalactites on the cave ceiling. Then they restart their dive exploring the interior of the cave underwater and exit the cave along the wall. Here, divers can look for moray eels hiding in the crevices of the wall or they can descend closer to the sea bottom, where groupers and octopi are hiding among the rocks.
What to see
Divers will see beautiful stalactites and stalagmites inside the cave, and also some interesting marine species along the wall, including moray eels, scorpionfish, octopi, and large groupers.
