Shore Diving

ANCHOR BAY

limits of Mellieħa, Malta

Anchor Bay

This is an ideal location when strong north-easterly winds prevent diving in many other areas. Entry to the water is from a pier. The bottom slopes gradually, reaching depths, of 28 metres. The seabed is covered with some extremely large boulders, which provide some very interesting swimthroughs and curious formations. These are ideal for octopus, groupers and reasonably larger fish.

Approximately 150 metres from the bay is a large cave. The floor is at 10 metres and divers can easily surface inside and admire the dome-shaped ceiling. is rich in red algae. A little beyond the cave is a large window through the top of a prominent rock. Throughout the dive parrotfish are commonly seen, as well as medium sized groupers, and occasionally Moray eels are also seen.
