About:

Drawna Rocks is a shore dive that is accessed from Porthkerris Dive Centre. It must be one of the best shore dives in the country and is well worth a visit. Two angular rocks emerge up from the seabed to above the water level, providing a first class dive site. Marine life seems to be very fond of this reef and is here in abundance. There are wrasse of all colours, shapes and sizes, mullet, crabs, sea urchins and starfish and even more unusual creatures such as John Dory. The kelp is also nice to look at as it wafts in the swell and on the seaward side of the rocks there are jewel anemones of all colours. The closer to the surface you are, the more prolific the life becomes, and as you reach the shallow sandy patches watch out for cuttlefish which are there in shoals.
