Lokrum, in the tunnel
The cliffs of the mystical Island of Lokrum conceal a lake called The Dead Sea measuring some 20 m. The waves pounding on the cliff produce an eerie sound. According to legend, evil powers reside here. The lake can be reached via an undersea tunnel that lies on the island’s south shore.

Diving tips

Anchoring is in front of the cave’s entrance; the tunnel’s entrance zone lies at 5 m and leads to a small lake called The Dead Sea. The tunnel is 15-20 m long and wide enough for two divers. During ascent, divers should be aware of tourists diving into and swimming in the lake.

Marine life

No marine life is found in the cave and lake, but the entrance to the tunnel abounds in life; the shoreline here drops to 40 m. Divers may encounter echinoderms, crabs, two-banded and white sea bream and Tompot blennies.
