Malta

MTAHLEB

/ 2 / 1

Mtahleb is located off the eastcoast at the end of the road leadin to Rdum tas-Sarg north of Ras id-Dawarra Bay. This is an unspoiled dive site due to the conditions on the shore before you get to the water. The vertical walls, ledges, caves and caverns are home to many species. You will also find some cars pushed off the cliffs. The best option for this dive is to do it by boat.

Particulars

Entry and exit are only possible in near perfect weather conditions.

Warnings

Its all right clambering down 300m of rugged headland, but it is another matter climbing back up after a deep dive! Watch out for exercised induced DCS.
