Sirens dive site is located in St. Paul’s Bay on the northern coast of Malta. Sirens has a shallow reef close to the shore with maximum depth of 12 metres suitable for all levels of divers. The varying rocky and sandy bottom is covered with boulders and seagrass, and the quay wall is home for lots of marine life. Abundant sea life such as moray eel, octopus, cuttlefish, scorpionfish and different wrasses and breams.
Sirens reef is mostly used for practise and training area on try dives and diving courses, because of its shallow depth, calm and clear waters, and easy entry and exit from the shore. This is a great place for a refresher dive or practising underwater photography and navigation skills. Sirens is also a good night diving site.
There are several entry/exit points in the area, either rocky slope with handrail, or ladders or stairs leading to one of the rock-cut pools, and swimming from the pool to the open sea through a channel in the rock. Beware of boat traffic if diving far away from the shore, there are small boats entering and leaving nearby harbour and bay.
Parking, dive centre, restaurants and cafes are available close by. Sirens is nice site also for swimming and snorkelling.
