HALQ HAMIEM

/ 1

In a sharp indent in the cliff off Hekka Point, is a massive cave above the water, with a big shaft in the ceiling going right to the top of the cliff. Seen from the sea side this cave on itself is a spectacle already. Starting the dive from this cave, which is only 6m deep, you can go out in a northerly direction to reach a rocky ledge dropping down to 20m. The seabed is completely covered with massive boulders.

Particulars

This is a very rarely dived site so chances on encountering big fish are high.

Warnings

Always watch for currents.
