Migra Ferha


Migra Ferha

Deep – 60

Migra Ferha, located on the southwest coast of Malta under the dramatic Dingli Cliffs and the site offers a diverse underwater landscape, characterized by a collection of car wrecks, large boulders, caves, caverns, overhangs, and an archway. The maximum depth of the site goes well beyond 60 meters, providing an exhilarating experience for those who venture here.

One of the notable features of Migra Ferha is the car graveyard, formed from vehicles dropped off the cliffs, which now serves as an artificial reef. This area is found at a depth of about 15 meters, while even more car wrecks can be located in front of a large cave at 32 meters and deeper. On the other side of the reef is a boulder area ranging from 15 to 25 meters in depth, where divers can explore the small caves and caverns along the cliff walls.

The underwater scenery at Migra Ferha is as impressive as the views above the surface, with its steep wall, great cave system with tunnels and caverns, and a mix of warm salty sea water with cold clear fresh water from nearby underwater springs. Divers can encounter a variety of marine life, including bath sponges, common octopuses, parrotfish, Mediterranean cardinalfish, and saddled bream.

Accessing Migra Ferha is a challenge in itself, requiring a descent and ascent of approximately 150 steep steps. This makes the site suitable only for very fit divers. The site is ideally dived by boat, but those choosing to dive from the shore should be prepared for a demanding trek. After the dive, it’s advisable to rest for 20-30 minutes before climbing the steps back up to avoid decompression sickness and to stay hydrated.
