The Dolphin’s Cave is located off the east side of Meda Xica Island, which is a part of the Medes Islands. Divers can enter the cave through a small entrance, which can be found at a depth of 8-10m/26-33ft, and exit through the bigger end. However, the cave can be entered from either end, because it is actually a huge tunnel that is about 15m/49ft in the middle. It is quite dark inside the cave, so divers are advised to take a torch if they want to look at small creatures on the bottom and on the walls of the cave. Dolphin’s Cave got its name because of a small bronze statue of a dolphin that divers will see at the southern entrance to the cave.
