Arrecife Barrera de Posidonia Natural Monument
Named after a barrier reef (arrecife barrera) of coral because of a similar appearance, this site is colonised by the phanerogam posidonia oceanica, a marine plant endemic in the Mediterranean. The meadow of posidonia oceanica provides a habitat for more than 800 animal and plant species, as well as being a breeding ground for many different types of fish.
You can see the Arrecife Barrera de Posidonia from the beach between Roquetas del Mar and Aguadulce. Part of the plant is above the water level.
