Church Bay

Church Bay


This favoured afternoon dive is just a 20 minute drive from Cydive.

Church Bay is a great dive for all level of divers, beginning at just 5m and gradually descending to 23m. To enter this dive site there is a short walk down the side of the cliff. Don’t worry there is a rope secured to the wall acting as a handrail. However you can also put your equipment on by the water if it’s easier for you!

As soon as you enter the water you will be surrounded by huge schools of Mediterranean sand smelt. These are small glass like fish of around 8-15cm in length which live in schools of around 2000 fish! From the shallows there is a drop off from 7m to 11m onto a large sandy patch where you can find Japanese Puffer fish and sometimes cuttlefish.

There are 3 main swim throughs at Church Bay with plenty more if you look for them!  The second is by far the largest, enter from behind a small boulder and the cave will open up in front of you. This cave has a rock bottom so there’s no need to worry about reduced visibility after the first diver has gone through. Like other locations the reefs are made of volcanic rock which means bubble streams stay to flow out of the top of the reef.
