Ahrax Point (Dragonara Cave)

Location of Site:
Northwest of Rdum L-Ahmar

Type of Dive:
Can be done from the shore but ideally as a boat dive.

Can be choppy with some surge even though it is fairly sheltered from the south easterly wind.

Average Depth: 7 metres
Maximum Depth: 18 metres

Certification Required:
BSAC Ocean Diver, PADI Open Water or equivalent.

The Dive:
An entrance at 5 metres takes you to a small inland grotto open to daylight which makes this a popular site for photographers. The water temperature inside the grotto is often a few degrees higher then outside because it is land locked. This allows for increased marine growth, and one can note coral and an abundance of golden cup corals, false coral and many different types of tubeworm and starfish
