Rated 4.8, 9 votes

The Tugboat Rozy is a 40 meter long tugboat which was sank as a tourist attraction in 1992 here in Cirkewwa. Being one of the best known dive sites in Malta, she was originally scuttled for tourists who were taking a submarine or glass-bottomed boat to see the under water area. She is located at about 100 meters out from the old steel jetty (now gone) marked by a huge yellow buoy. She is still fully intact except engine and propellers with its mast starting at 20 meters and most of the wreck b...

Rated 4.7, 7 votes

The Blue Hole near Dwerja Point is probably the most famous dive site in Malta which can be reached after a 200 meter hard walk down the rocky shore. The Blue Hole is a natural rock formation created by wind and water. Nowadays it has some of the most beautiful colors of blue and azure in it. In fact it is just an opening in the land that divers use to safely enter and exit the sea. It is about ten meters wide and five meters across but gives way to the open sea at nine meters deep once underwat...

Rated 4.6, 8 votes

Ghar Lapsi is an area south of Malta which offers some spectacular dive sites. After many steps down from a parking area you can enter the enclosed bay. There are some caverns, reefs with small walls and caves in the area, but the best known cave is reached after a short swim. It is beautiful especially during the day when the cracks in its ceiling produce a lot of light inside the caves. More than 40 meter long, shallow with many exits and full of light have made it a very special cave dive kno...

Reqqa Point or Reqqa Reef

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 4.5, 6 votes

Reqqa Point or Reqqa Reef is a spectacular steep drop-off that goes well beyond the 40 meter sport diving limits. Getting there from shore is after a small walk across some rocks fully geared up. Be extra careful for the many fishermen that fish here, but also for heavy wind and currents which can make the sea very choppy. The wall is covered in sponges with many of the smaller fish present. Boulders at the wall create perfect living places for groupers, scorpion fishes and octopus. But also p...

Rated 4.4, 8 votes

The Um El Faroud is a 10,000 ton container ship of 110 meter long originally build in England and sold as a Libyan oil tanker. She was being repaired for over three years in Valetta harbor when a gas explosion finally sank it. Nine Maltese dockyard workers died in the tragic accident and got a memorial brass plate with their names placed above the bridge. After the explosion they removed doors and sank it in front of the Blue Grotto. Unfortunately its final resting place on the ocean floor was m...
