The Algarve coast line in Portugal is home to some incredible cave and cavern dives. The most south-westerly point of the Algarve, termed “The Corner of Europe” boasts a cave system known as Ilheu Martinhal e Cave Catedral.
I entered the cave system at 16 metres and then followed it along into an air filled dome where it was possible to surface and speak to my buddy, which is quite surreal half way through a dive when you’re used to the silence of being underwater!
This site is also densely populated which species of nudi branch, huge lobsters and numerous starfish.
