GAHR QAWQLA

/ 1 / 1

Gahr Qawqla is at an offshore rock rising about 5m out of the water. Until the mid-20th century, this rock was connected to the land, forming a spectacular archway above the sea. Historic black-and-white photographs show a boat passing through this arch. The dive itself is not particularly inspiring, but tiny moray eels and small octopuses are often found among the many small boulders littering the seabed.
