Margarina Reef is located off the west coast of the small island of Susak, which can be found near the bigger island of Mali Losinj. There is an interesting canyon in the middle of the reef, which starts at the depth of 5m/16ft and drops down to 17m/56ft. Divers can find an ancient shipwreck lying on the bottom of the canyon. On its left side the canyon ends by a vertical wall that drops further down to the depth of 30m/98ft, where a broken amphora can be found.
