The Princess Alice Bank is a submarine mountain with an extensive area of shallow depths, is located 50 nautical miles southwest of the island of Pico.
With clear waters that allow the observation of the bottom from the surface and a huge biodiversity, the Bank, in addition to being a fishing resort par excellence, is one of the most important places for diving in the Atlantic Ocean.
