Amphitheatre Bay
Amphitheatre Bay
Once an old quarry in Roman times, the sea currents have cut a formation in the rocks resembling an amphitheatre, giving this interesting and easy dive its name (not to be mistaken with the Amphitheatre dive site at Coral Bay).
There are three underwater bays – each with a mini wall, and the rocky landscape protrudes above the water with the shapes below clearly visible thanks to the crystal seawaters of the bay.

Remnants of slabs from the quarry are now the home of mainly small fish whilst others hide in the patches of seagrass.

Typical marine life spotted here includes damselfish, flounder, nudibranch, sea cucumbers, sea snails and sea stars. Occasionally turtles and octopi are sighted.
