Anchor Bay is nestled between two cliffs. It is a shallow dive over a sandy bottom littered with big rocks and boulders that leads to some beautiful caves. Scorpion Cave is the largest. Gorgeous, blue water and abundant marine life make your dive here complete. Scorpion Cave is 150 meters from the bay at 10 meters depth. To reach the site you need to swim for about 20 minutes. As in other caves you can ascend in Scorpion Cave and enjoy the wonderful internal vault. On the other side of the bay at a depth of 7 meters lies a large anchor, with an enormous chain. Outside the bay is a wreck, the Scott Craig, at 12 meters.

Particulars

This is an ideal location as a fallback when diving at different spots are impossible due to strong wind from the north corners. Anchor Bay once served as a filming location for the movie Popeye, with Robin Williams.

Warnings

In the caves you can ascend but keep breathing through your regulator. The air quality is poor.
