Susie’s Pool

Photographer, David Agius

Susie’s Pool is the shallowest diving spot within the Ċirkewwa Marine Park, having a shallow, rocky plateau of only 6m deep.  This dive is the perfect dive for beginners to gain some confidence or to practice important skills such as navigation.   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.
