Cirkewwa Arch is a beautiful natural underwater archway. The Arch is actually a cavern which roof has long since collapsed leaving the arch as a result. The Arch is at 12 meters below the surface and 8 metres above the seabed. On the way to the Arch there are also some nice caves/tunnels.

Entry to the sea for the Arch dive is from a large stride entry point (same as for tugboat Rozi wreck). When diving along the wall and the reef it is fairly shallow dive at around 18-20 m. Diving the Arch can also be combined with Tugboat Rozi dive.

The reef continues well beyond the Arch around the depth of 15-20 and further on the seabed next to the reef/wall reaches depths over 40 meters. The wall offers many small caves and hangouts. This part of the reef is called Reef Beyond Rozi.

★★★☆☆ Arch itself is a bit disappointing, but the small caves on the way make the dive much more interesting.
