Ras Il-Hobz or the Middle Finger

Ras il-Hobz,also known as Middle Finger, is a massive rock pinnacle rising from the deep waters of Gozo and stopping at just 8m below the surface. This site is a favourite with many as the underwater landscape changes dramatically from 5m up to a drop of 100m+. The bountiful marine life varies from shoals of breams, to moray eels, to the occasional barracudas and groupers, and also a mecca to macro-life as nudi branches.
