HONDOQ REEF

/ 1 / 1

Hondoq Reef is an easy and shallow small reef which houses lots of marine life in its cracks and crevasses but also in the surrounding white sand. There are a few swimthroughs and underwater arches and a pipe which transports water from Gozo to Comino. The pipe is covered in algae, coral and has attracted quite a few species of fish. Currents, surge and access methods have made it a perfect dive site for starting divers. The bottom is a mixture of posedonia grass and sandy patches. It provides excellent photographic scenery due to its bright white sands and light filtering through the arches.

Particulars

At night crabs, gobies, cuttlefish and shrimp are very common.

Warnings

Boat traffic at surface. Watch out when surfacing.
