Bawden Rock

This site is a Dive Newquay favourite. Only accessible by boat, Bawden Rocks is a wall dive bottoming at 25-30m. Bordering the St. Agnes VMCA, it experiences an ’overspill’ effect - meaning there is a huge diversity of marine life to see.

Popular for the large populations of jewel anemones; this can be a truly magical sight when they are feeding. Also expect to see various nudibranch species, pink sea fans and more!
