Nice reef. Great 'cave' covered in green weed carpet. Giant 'ball' of little fish in cave made it special. Photos courtesy of K. J. Muddiman
Leuke bootduik naar de Malta’s Blue Eye. Niet diep maar wel erg leuk en afwisselend. Mooie kleuren in grot (zaklamp mee!) Let op bootjes!
Geweldige duik naar de ingestorte grot met een schitterende lichtinval. Afwisselende flora en fauna. Diepte buiten de grot tot zo'n 20m.
Ahrax Point is a fairly remote spot at the most northern tip of Malta. The dive site is accessible from land. Yet the entry is difficult because of the rocks so you might want to consider a boat dive. You dive along beautiful reefs and walls. The main attraction is an open cave, which is accessed by a tunnel. You can see several different soft corals and sponges and lots of fish. Despite its remote location, there are various facilities available. Near the dive site is a campsite with a bathroom, shower and dining facilities.
Outside of the collapsed cave you dive on a bottom of sea grass with crevices and small caves in the cliffs.
A boat dive is recommended here, because of the difficult rocky entry from the shore. From the shore entrance you also have to swim ten minutes to reach the cave.
