Diving/Dive spots

The combination of stone and sandy seabeds, cliffs, rock benches and caves on Malta, creates a highly diverse marine environment. To this end, the numerous wrecks are a safe habitat for many species. A rocky seabed, minimal tides and sparse currents ensure excellent underwater visibility.
Thereby, the diver can marvel at groupers, jack mackerels, sea robins, Mediterranean rainbow wrasse, and scorpion fish, among others, during his rounds of the Malta dive sites. Within the macro range, feather duster worms, various forms of slugs, the most wonderful species of anemones, and with a little luck, also seahorses, which elevates the heart rate of every diver, and above all, underwater photographers. And sometimes, as a special treat, you may get to see eels, barracuda swarms, tuna or rays.
