GHALLIS ROCKS

/ 1

Ghallis Rocks is quite exposed but sheltered from the north western winds. It has been formed in a strange way on a platform that juts out to sea and connects to the mainland. The sea is very shallow between Ghallis Rocks and the coast but around its edges you have a drop off to 16 meters. Close to the little islands you will be diving over rock full with crevasses, small channels and big holes filled with smooth rocks. Further away from the rocky landscape it changes to sand with seagrass meadows and boulders.

Particulars

Because of the good conditions here, the spot is also used for windsurfing. Respect each other.

Warnings

Heavy boat traffic in high season so be carefull. The water can have current, surge and swell and can be choppy at the surface.
