ST. PAULS ISLAND OUTER REEF
St Paul's Island Outer 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. A dive on the St Pauls Island Outer Reef starts at 4 meters and heads eastward for some time but will bring you down stepwise via drop offs into a depth from 14 to 25 meters. Somewhere close to the reef, about 35 meters away at 24 meters depth is a car wreck. It is a dive site with possibly some strong current and here you can find the larger species. Let the beautiful rock formations and the abundant marine life surprise you.
You can also dive on the inner reef of St. Pauls Island. Here the current is less strong than on the outer reef. The Islands of St. Paul are located in St. Paul's Bay, a hundred meters off the coast of Malta. They are two uninhabited rocky cliffs, which together form one island at low tide.
The current can be strong here.
