Nudibranchs and lobsters can be encountered in between the boulders which dot the area. Shoals of damselfish, small groups of bream, a few grouper, lobster and parrotfish will be seen here. The walls are covered with algae, bristle worms, sea urchins and lots of starfish. This site is situated under the highest cliffs in Gozo. Easy access by boat, but a shore dive can also be done here by jumping off the cliff near the Ta' Cenc hotel. A steel ladder will provide a way back up.
