Carrière de Maffle is an old quarry in Wallonia with limited visibility and various diving facilities. Underwater you'll come across a platform, a car wreck, a boat, a motorbike, a 15 meter long tunnel and a house without a roof. The deepest point is at 31 meter. Maffle is known for its large eels and its particularly beautiful but fragile stalactites. Other species that live in Maffle are carp, pike, roaches and frogs. You can also find shells and fossils in the walls of the quarry. Reserve in advance. Paid diving.
Enter Carrière de Maffle from a concrete pontoon. Prepare for limited visibility but don't let that stop you from enjoying yourself for at least an hour. Blue granite stone used to be quarried in Maffle. This blue granite stone is excellent for making sculptures. The quarry was closed in 1951 and converted into a nature reserve. A visit to the Maffle Stone Museum, which focuses on the history of this quarry, is well worthwhile.
Carrière de Maffle is open on specific days, usually Sundays and Fridays.
