The first day of our trip to Malta has gone well. Cirkewwa is a peninsula on the Northern end of Malta, complete with a busy ferry terminal, carrying cars and passengers to nearby Gozo. Looking at the aerial view on Google Earth was not especially inspiring, but the site came highly recommended. I was impressed as we arrived, as there is a “divers only” slip road, complete with parking. It’s the only place I’ve been with free parking, reserved for divers only (you put your cert card in the car window).
Steps provide an easy entry to a very pleasant reef. There are two wrecks within swimming distance, but for the first dip, we stayed with the reef to get the lie of the land. With excellent visibility, shoals of fish, caves and swim throughs, there was plenty to keep us interested.
