Qala Quarry lies at one kilometer north of Gozo's most easterly point. The main attraction here is a sunken spectacular reef with an average depth of 15 meters. The seabed mainly consists of a very fine shingle and sand and Posidonia seagrass banks. Small reefs, patches of stone and small boulders form a perfect habitat for the smaller marine life.
One can also find huge anchors on the seabed.
Watch for currents! Sensitive for winds from the north-west to north-east.
