Ras il-Hobz, also known as Middle Finger, is a pinnacle rising out from depths of 40+ m to around 10 m. The pinnacle attracts a lot of sea life, like amberjacks, dentex and moray eels. Also crayfish and hermit crabs are found in the cracks, along with various types of corals.

The shoreline slopes down to reach depths of 80+ meters, but the most interesting parts can be reached with a max depth of 25 m. This dive site is used for technical diving training because of enough depth accessible from the shore.

★★★★★ Amazing dive around a marine summit whose tip is located at a depth of -8m and which can descend to more than -80m - Parking difficult to access in rainy weather - Easy launching

★★★☆☆ Lots of colorful sponges in the deeper part of the pinnacle. Not too much too see, but sea life is good when there is some current.
