 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): Maximum depth of 17m is from a report, I found 14m but local legend says it's 200m deep and there are treasures on the bottom :D

Fresh water, gets warmer than sea in summertime. Thermocline.

Eels spotted shallow when it's dark, turle, crabs, koï carps, small sand and open water fish, shrimps, snails,...
Nice long green plants "forest" all around the deeper area.

Nothing really special if you're used to dive in lakes but interesting for a change from the sea (when it's too rough for example).

I've never seen any other diver or snorkeller.
Lake used for swimming and pedal boats.

Tavernas on the shore.
