This extended underwater rocky headland lies approximately 200m offshore. Two large archways have been carved through it by nature, creating one of the strangest and most impressive formations to be found in Maltese waters. The first, smaller archway starts at 27m and directly beneath it is the larger of the two, stretching to the seabed at 36m. There is prolific fish life here especially around the outer leg of the reef, including groupers and spectacular shoals of barracuda.
