Zonqor Point is located on the north side of the entrance to Marsaskala Bay. Zonqor Point is a shore dive site with shallow reefs on both sides of the peninsula, and its maximum depth is around 20 metres. The reef on the south side of Zonqor Point is usually dived on the way back from the tugboat wrecks St. Michael and Tug 10. This is a gently sloping reef where rocks and seabed are covered with marine growth of many colours. The north side reef, known as Zonqor Point North, has its own entry/exit points about 300 metres farther. There are some large boulders with gullies close to the shore, further away the boulders and gullies become smaller and the seabed deepens slowly.

☆☆☆☆ Wrecks are interesting, but the reef itself is quite boring.
