Roman Wall

PADI Underwater Naturalist


Roman Wall is the house reef here at Cydive! It’s just a 2 minute walk from our centre to the entry point. This dive site is perfect for beginner divers, bubblemakers, training and snorkellers. In the Roman period, the harbour walls joined the remaining wall that is still here today!

There are two ways to enter Roman Wall, either via stone steps or from the beach. When you first enter is the water the depth is around 2m inside of the break water. This area offers incredible conditions for marine life, from May-October there are green turtles grazing. There are 5 Green turtles that regularly visit this location to feed on the sea grass, each with unique features. Within the shallows you can also find octopus, cuttlefish and trumpetfish. Once you exit the shallows there is a large sandy patch which lead to two large anchors from old wrecks. The anchors provide great props for pictures! In the deeper area of this site we are fortunate enough to find Loggerhead Turtles.

Loggerheads are often described as the dinosaurs of the sea because of their size. If you’ve never seen them before they can be a little scary but they are beautiful to watch.They are currently listed as endangered as their numbers start to decline. This is due to boating accidents, hunting and loss of suitable habitats.

Night dives

Roman Wall come to life as the sunsets, still waters become bustling with life! There is an abundance of Octopus, Cuttlefish and squid as they come out to hunt for food. Around the submerged wall we often find Greater slipper lobster and Monaco Shrimp crawling between the rock!
