The morphology of the seabed in the Guanahacabibes National Park features a fascinating landscape formed by vast expanses of white sands and unique rock formations known as cabezos or mogotes. However, the most impressive features are the extensive dark blue coloured cliffs and the variety of caves, caverns and tunnels, with their vestiges of times gone by.
The marine fauna includes typical species such as barracudas, parrot fish, lobsters, green morays, groupers, red porgies, angel sharks and crabs. The vegetation features a rich variety of gorgonians – Acroporas, Madrasis, Oculina, Diploria and Scolima – as well as vast and beautiful colonies of Black Coral which carpet the cliffs.
With its crystalline waters which permit a visibility of up to 30 meters at depths of 25 to 30 meters, the seabed offers sharp contrasts which are ideal for underwater photography.
This will be the setting for the IMASUB 2018 underwater photography competition which is open to photographers from any country. The only entry requirement is to comply with the event's regulations.
