Malta

H.M.S. STUBBORN

/ 3 / 3

The HMS Stubborn is in excellent condition. It is prominently located on the bottom northeast of St Pauls Bay, only slightly inclined toward the starboard side. The water is clear here! The wreck is 53 meters deep, but the gigantic submarine emerges already after a descent of 30 meters. Once on the wreck you can see the conning tower well, the three escape hatches are still open. Until 1994, almost nobody in Malta knew about this majestic wreck. Now it is a popular dive site for experienced wreck divers.
