Pedra de Deu is a small rocky islet situated at the northernmost point of the island of Meda Gran, which is the biggest in the group of the Medes Islands. The dive site features a beautiful wall that begins at a depth of around 20m/66ft and goes down to some 40m/131ft deep to a sandy sea bed. Descending along the wall, divers will see beautiful gorgonians and a variety of interesting marine species that like to hide in little crevices and holes on the wall. Closer to the sea bottom, divers can find a little cave and see a lot of lobsters hiding among the rocks at the cave entrance.
