St Paul's Island Inner Reef is located at St. Paul's Bay, about 100 meters offshore from Malta. It consists of two islands connected by an ishtmus and therefore sometimes reffered to as St. Paul's Islands.You dive here on St Pauls Island Inner Reef. The boat stops here at around a depth of 8 meters. From this depth you descend to a drop-off at approximately 19 meters, which leads you to a canyon at 22 meters and an area littered with boulders, some you can pass under. Continue your swim around the reef wall at 20 meters and make your safety stop at the top of the reef. The reef wall, canyon and the marine life are the highlights of this dive.
Lots of fish who feed on the left overs from the fish farming pens that are close by. You can also dive on the outer reef of St. Pauls Island. Here the current is stronger, on the other hand you have a chance to spot the larger species. The Islands of St. Paul are located in St. Paul's Bay, a 100 meters off the coast of Malta. They are two uninhabited rocky cliffs, which together form one island when the tide is low.
Visibility gets less every now and then because of the fish farming pens close by. Watch out for fishing nets and lines.
