FORT ST ELMO
Easy dive site
Fort St. Elmo is one of Malta's lesser known dive spots. Still its a very nice reef dive with lots of boulders and gullies to explore. A dive at Fort St. Elmo in the early morning sun can be quite surprising and is easy to combine with a dive on the HMS Maori.
There are four entry points, from ladders to stairs to a sloping path. Fort St Elmo is named after museum Fort St. Elmo, beautifully overlooking the bay.
