Las Salinas is blessed with extraordinary underwater topography and is located at South BarrierÔÇÖs west end. The spots used for entering and exiting are terraced and as you descend, they will almost become like vertical walls. Once you are 24 meters deep, one of these vertical walls features a collection of underwater caves at its bottom.
The caves are the highlight of Las Salinas and feature a huge diversity of black coral and sponges that are stuck under the soil. The most notable cave has a fairly wide entrance and if you shine a flashlight inside it, you will be left mesmerized by the kaleidoscopic arrays of colors inhibited inside. These will be in fact living organisms that will form bizarre shapes and hallucinating colors when the light will be shone upon them. Furthermore, you may even come across stone sharks that tend to retire to these caves to sleep. So donÔÇÖt worry, theyÔÇÖll be sleeping.
