Ras il-Ħobż, otherwise known as Middle Finger, is best described as a huge column rising from the deep to end 8 metres below the surface. The narrow channel between this rock and the shore is 35 metres deep whereas on the seaward side, the bottom drops dramatically to 100+ metres. These features make this place a useful site for divers of all experience levels. A nearby plateau is just 5 metres deep, perfect for training or for making a prolonged decompression stop more interesting! At 63 metres, technical divers can find a huge 3-prong anchor protruding out from the reef wall. The whole site is also excellent for fish life.
