Right Arch, as the name states, can be found on the right hand side of Cirkewwa's entry points. The arch is a cavern which has a large hole in the top, creating a narrow bridge of rock. Nice features here are the natural arch with right behind it a naturally formed bowl where lots of life can be found and two swim-throughs. On the way to the arch or on the way back you'll pass the two swim-throughs, the Madonna, Sugarloaf and the Gnome Gardens. There are parking spaces reserved for divers. Always take your diving certificate with you and place it behind your windscreen.

Particulars

Start your dive from the giant stride entry point at the small light tower and use Susies Pool as exit point. During your dive you may see Tugboat Rozi's stern, but only if visibility is good.

Warnings

A surprisinlgy strong current may already be there at the start or come up on the way back. Busy is summer season. There are parking spaces reserved for divers. Always take your diving certificate with you and place it behind your windscreen.
