Anchoring in the Omo Morto bay, not distant from the harbour, you can access one of the most beautiful walls in Ustica. The dive site is very interesting also for night dives and it is very much appreciated for its biodiversity, as it is a constant destination for marine biology courses. The Falconara dive starts at one of the mooring buoys positioned inside the bay, on a rockfall full of ravines and solitary fish like the brittle starfish.

Descending up to a 25 meter depth we will arrive at the Falconiera cave. The walls of the cave are erected from the sandy seabed and offer an amazing view as they change chromatically thanks to the presence of a large number of plant and animal species like madrepore, bryozoa and colonies of yellow cluster anemone. 

The cave develops in a straight tunnel, about 28 meters long, that ends in a room with a rocky seabed structured in narrow crevices where a big brown grouper found its home. 

The Falconiera dive, thanks to its simplicity, is one of the best spots for night dives. There is the possibility to admire many animal and plant species that are active only at night. Among these, one of the most fascinating, is the sea anemone of the order of the Actiniaria. This anemone is able to change its appearance between day and night time. During the day, it is inactive, whilst at night it manifests itself in all its beauty: its body is stretched, sprinkled with dark glands, with the apical portion characterized by long tentacles.

Everything is enriched by the illuminated lighthouse that rises above the cliff.
