Has a desalination plant near it and the inlet pipe is the main attraction of this shallow dive as it houses moray eels, octopus and cuttle fish with a large sand area, which we often find rays and other bottom dwellers.
This reef goes from a depth of 11-m to 3 meters with two swim through and many cracks and holes that hide numbers of marine animals and plants. Surrounded by sand there is also the opportunity to see rays.
Xlendi Bay is a long and narrow inlet that faces south – west. This is one of the best shallow dives Gozo has to offer. To those who are relatively new to cave diving you can try our very nice tunnel that offers a perfect opportunity for building your experience.
Mgarr Ix Xini
This protected inlet is another of our better shallow dives. The dive site is primarily a sandy bottom housing Rays, Giant Ton Shells and flying Gurnards with rocky areas along the bottom of the cliffs with octopus and also sea horses. There is also a small cave which can be penetrated safely as it is not an over head environment.
