Reef Dive, Cirkewwa, Malta
Cirkewwa Right Arch is a beautiful natural underwater archway. The Arch is actually a cavern which roof has long since collapsed leaving the arch as a result.
Entry to the sea for the Arch dive is from a large giant stride entry point (same as for tugboat Rozi wreck). When diving along the reef it is fairly shallow dive at around 18-20m. Diving the Arch can also be combined with Tugboat Rozi dive.
The reef continues well beyond the Arch around the depth of 15-20m and further on the seabed next to the reef reaches depths over 40 meters. The wall offers many small swim throughs which make for exciting new adventures for beginners
Cirkewwa Arch is also known as Right Arch or Green Arch. There is another less known arch in Cirkewwa at Paradise Bay reef called Left Arch or White Arch.
The Arch starts at 12 meters down to 19 meters to the seabed. On your way to the Arch, there are many swimthroughs which makes this dive more exciting and adventurous.
Below the Arch, is a large seagrass bowl where you will be able to find morey eels, octopus, and a couple of larger stingrays resting in the grass. Be sure to take your cameras as this dive is beautiful and the archway makes for a great background for your underwater selfies
You must be certified to dive to a depth of 18 meters to dive this site, as such we would require a minimum of Open Water Diver certification. We would also recommend Nitrox Diver.
