Susie's Pool is a shallow diving area in Cirkewwa. This dive site is ideal for beginners as there is a rocky plateau of only 6 meters deep which is often used to practice skills. It's also a good warm up to dive to the start a diving holiday in Malta.

The reef has a steep drop off to about 30 metres. Halfway along the reef wall there is a statue of Our Lady, also known as Madonna, in a small cave at a depth of 18 metres. The Madonna statue was placed in this cavern by a local dive club Amphibians Diving Club in November 1987. For the 20th anniversary in 2007 the dive club added a commemorative plaque inside the cave. In Christmas 2017 the club also added a small crib next to Madonna statue.

Other underwater statues in Malta are Statue of Christ (Kristu tal-Bahhara) off Qawra Point, Crib nativity scene in Ghar Lapsi, and diving helmet in Wied iz-Zurrieq.
