Point of Interest
“Cliff Divers! OK not as long a dive as some places but great fun to see. The divers themselves will want to drum up a crowd so if you go down to the entrance to their diving area, a 5 minute walk north along the beach from Su Casa, they will find you to negotiate the cost of your view of a dive. Don't go when you are in a hurry, they want as big a crowd as possible - sometimes it takes a long time to drum up enough. They dive at night during high tourist times, using torches, quite interesting.”
