The access to the water mirror is through a staircase of 170 steps.
Floating and diving activities are suspended between October and April, due to the proliferation of microalgae, which reduces visibility.
Only certified divers can perform the activity in the period.

A hole in the ground is the gateway to the 72-meter abyss.
In the end, a huge lake with transparent water, 80 meters deep, turns green and blue, depending on the intensity of the light.

If you want to dive autonomously, you need to be accredited and, if you are not, you will be enchanted by snorkeling. But we warn you: this adventure requires good physical condition.
When floating in Bonito, you must remember that is prohibited to use sunscreen and repellent before entering the water and even during activities, after all these products are not part of the water and preservation is necessary!
