The Platform is one of the most popular dives in SCUBA IBIZA and no doubt, the most special one with an extraordinary variety of species and a science-fiction landscape, which will attract underwater photographers.

The Platform is located on the west side of the Espardell islet, some 20 minutes navigation time away from SCUBA IBIZA.

“La Mariana” or “the Platform” was a floating fish farm where gilthead breams were bred. The fish farm was abandoned because it was not profitable any more and it finally sank in 1997 after many storms.

It is a huge hexagonal structure of reinforced concrete that appears at 11 meters and lies on the bottom of the sea at 33 meters.

The wreck has become an artificial habitat for a wide number of marine species. The most famous one is the Mediterranean barracuda (Sphyraena sphyraena). Hundreds of them swim around the structure and are not afraid of divers. Besides, amberjacks, groupers, conger eels, moray eels, scorpion fish and many crustaceans can be found on the site.
