Geldkis

LOCATION: The furtherest rock out the sea, from Sandy Cove
ACCESS: As for Sandy Cove. Carry on past Het Huis de Kraaistein, and past the two flattish rocks to the furtherest clump of rocks. It is a swim of about 400m in icy cold water, but you can stop at the flat rocks on the way back, for a rest and to warm up in the sun.
CONDITIONS: Geldkis should be dived in perfect conditions as the swim can be very tiring in choppy sea conditions and there can be a surge around the blinder in a big sea
AVERAGE DEPTH: 12m
MAXIMUM DEPTH: 22m

This is a lovely dive on the outer side of the rock, or around the blinder, which breaks a few metres out to sea from the rock. There is a cave with a chimney at approximately 15m and the reef is quite unspoiled as not too many people brave the long, cold and tiring swim out to the site. The blinder is beautiful and plays host to anemones of varying pastel colours, many species of nudibranches and plenty of crayfish. Shy octopuses can be found hiding in crevices and overhangs in the reef.
