GHALLIS ROCKS

Malta

/ 1

Ghallis Rocks is exposed but the dive site itself is sheltered from the northwest wind. It is an oddly shaped plateau that sticks into the sea from the mainland but still seems to be attached to it. The sea between Ghalis Rocks and the coast is very shallow but at the edges there are drop-offs to about 16 meters.

Particulars

Water from the coast and swim close to the islands on rocky landscapes full of cracks, small canals and large holes filled with pebbles and slippery stones. Further away, the rocks turn into a sandy bottom with meadows of eelgrass and boulders.

Warnings

Ghallis Rocks is a paradise for windsurfers. Respect each other. Beware of boat traffic and high waves in windy weather conditions.
