Wied il-Mielah

The Wied il-Mielah Valley, located in Gharb on the north west of Gozo, is a natural megalithic archway found in the sea. The dive site is accessible by boat, and consists of a photogenic underwater cave with an air pocket. At the base of the arch lies a rocky ledge, which is home to an abundance of sea life, including shoals of barracuda.

Xlendi Reef & Tunnel

For many scuba divers, Xlendi Bay will be their first venture into an underwater cave site. The site is primarily sandy, with rocky cave walls containing colourful sea life, such as starfish and sponges, green and purple algae, octopodes and bristle worms. Sunlight penetrating the cave creates a stunning lighting effect, and the cave is also a popular destination for night dives!
