Amphores or Left Reef is less known as a diving route in Cirkewwa but still interesting. Very different from the dive to the P29 or Tugboat Rozi there's a passage between massive boulders, where a few 'fake' amphoras have been placed on the bottom. The many trenches, crevasses, holes and large pebbles between the rocks and big boulders make Cirkewwa Amphores a great dive site to explore. With sufficient air you can also reach the arch in Paradise Bay, just around the corner at 10 meters depth, called 'Ben's Arch' or 'Left Cirkewwa Arch'. There are parking spaces reserved for divers. Always take your diving certificate with you and place it behind your windscreen.

Particulars

Enter the water at Susies Pool or at the concrete staircase that is located towards Paradise Bay. Now descend along the massive rock formations.

Warnings

Busy is summer season. There are parking spaces reserved for divers. Always take your diving certificate with you and place it behind your windscreen.
