Réserve sous-marine du Larvotto.20/08/97; 23 ha; 43º44’N 007º26’E. Rocky coastal zone with rocky bottom to a depth of 10m in the western part; in the eastern part, beaches and artificial rocky protective works, and important seagrass beds of Posidoniaoceanica, cited as one of Ramsar’s "under-represented types". Qualifies for the List under the fish criterion (criterion 7), as the area shelters numerous species and constitutes a very important spawning ground. Development projects exist near the western part, but the protected beaches are used only for recreational activities; the coastal waters of the Reserve are off-limits to tourism, but serve as a site for limited environmental education and as a base for numerous scientific studies. Site boundaries extended in 2008. Ramsar site no. 918. Most recent RIS information: 2000.
