Best dive-season / How to get there: All year round weather permitting. The beach is situated in front of the Falmouth Hotel by the ice cream hut.

This is actually one of the 5 U-Boats that broke their moorings in a storm, crashing onto the rocks. Two are on Pendennis, two were on Gyllyngvase but later removed and this one makes the five. More intact than the two on Pendennis but still heavily salvaged many years ago. It is usually covered in kelp and can be hard to find but there is usually a lot of life around it. It is so shallow at low water that you can stand on it with your head & shoulders out of the water. It is still well worth a dive.
