Nothing bad to write about the caves. Everytime very exciting. Nice and shallow dive. As usual not so much life in caves, more outside.

Diving with Dive Malta. Just a perfect boat dive. Caves, blue light, boulders, crevasses, all full of live. A must do dive for every diver.

The beautiful Santa Maria Caves consist of a system of dozens of caves that creates a wonderful spectacle with the incident light. The caves are known as one of the world's most beautiful cave systems.. Each cave has its own peculiarities. There are caves that are half submerged so every open water diver can take a dive here. Others are completely submerged and are suitable only for more experienced cave or cavern divers. The scenery is beautiful and it has very diverse marine life. Fish have gotten used to be fed and will come very close.

Particulars

Beautiful rock formations, arches and swim through tunnels. Caves were used in 2002 as a movie location for 'Count of Monte Cristo'.

Warnings

It can get crowded during the day. Especially in high season.
