The Qawra Point dive site is situated at the southern tip of St. Paul's Bay. The dive can be done in different ways, depending on the diver's experience. Novice divers usually descend to the depth of 6m/20ft where they see large areas of sea grass and many small gullies. Going around the corner of the reef, they will find a small cave, that will lead them to an inland sea, where they can surface and snorkel around a central rock. More experienced divers are advised to follow the reef to a depth of around 28m/92ft, where they will find beautifully shaped sponges and an abundance of marine life. At a depth of 36m/118ft on the left-hand side of the reef, there will be a cave in a horseshoe shape. The visibility within the cave is very poor, and the bottom is rocky with silty areas. They can explore the inland sea on their return journey.

What to see
