Isolated from the mainland, Fastnet Rock has an impressive lighthouse on top and impressive diving scenery underneath, including huge shoals of fish.

Due to strong tides this is a spot for experienced divers.

The almost intact wreck of German U-boat U-260, located 20miles from Fastnet at 150ft on the rocky seabed, is a one of a kind dive due to the ships completeness.
