HONDOQ BAY

/ 1

Hondoq Bay is a sandy-bottomed bay with meadows of neptune grass. A water pipeline runs out through the middle of the bay heading towards Comino. Hondoq Bay is an excellent spot to carry out training dives for beginners. When conditions are right one can enjoy a drift dive, by swimming out and finding a current which propells the diver in towards the shore.

Particulars

Here one can spot baby octopus, baby sting rays and more young fish.

Warnings

Boat traffic outside the bay.
