From shoals of barracudas and amberjacks to groupers and at times even tuna, marine life in the area and around the two archways is prolific. Riddled with several crevasses on the walls and dotted with different sized boulders on the sea bed, there is so much to see and explore. Apart from the landscape, the dive site also has some interesting swim-throughs. The shaded undersides of both arches are covered in small and colourful sponges and golden cup corals, whereas the deeper parts are home to slipper lobsters and various species of sea urchins.
If you dive south towards the shore, you’ll be able to marvel at the large meadows of Posidonia, also known as Neptune Grass or Mediterranean tapeweed, endemic to the area. Closer to the rocky Xwejni shoreline, you’ll be able to spot cuttlefish, wrasses and an octopus or two.
