Rdum L-Ahmar or Red Cliffs, facing Mellieha Bay and going around the corner going north, is a dive site near Ahrax Point which mainly consists out of rocks. Large split boulders have created some excellent swimthroughs and channels in which fish love to house themselves. These cliffs can only be reached by a rough dirt road. Because it is difficult to access, this area is mostly used by off-roaders and diving schools searching for unspoiled fauna.
Ask before you go there so you are sure where exactly to go.
Difficult entry and exit point. Watch out for the busy boat traffic in summer.
