SMUGGLERS CAVE & REEF

/ 1 / 2

Smugglers Cave & Reef is located below the cliffs of Rdum L-Ahmar on the north side of Marfa ridge. There's a shallow cave at the base of the cliffs with a depth of around 3 meters and a small swimthrough. The sandy and sloping bottom will then lead you to a maximum depth 18 meters, followed by a rocky bottom with small and large boulders, serving as a home to a large variety of creatures.

Particulars

Smugglers Cave & Reef is very easy and shallow and therefore suitable for all levels. Nevertheless it's an interesting dive site for experienced divers.
