Qawra Point North
At Qawra point the steep drop off offers a nice rough wall and several big caves. You can find this divesite in Qawra, neer the National Aquarium. Bigger types of fish, octopus and eel hide in these rocks. The site marks the beginning of a shallower part of the north side of Malta, where the reef top comes to approximately 17 meters. Barracuda, dentex, tuna and amberjacks frequently roam around the site, searching for the smaller fish which seek protection on the reef borders. Their speed and calculated approaches are beautiful to witness over the slightly vegetated and sloping reef walls. Parrot fish and varieties of grouper, cardinal fish and bream color the top of the reef. The site is only known to few dive centers and that is just the way we like it!
