Half Way Rocks

Half way rocks is so called because it is part way between Vase Rock and Maen Voes. It is the most dramatic of all the pinnacles on the Manacles with one side being almost vertical, from 12m to 37m. It is quite often confused with PenWyn although it is around 50m away. The top of the rock is around 12m, with the sea bed as far away as 37m. Covered in anemones and corals, it is also often described as an underwater garden. One of the U.K’s best reefs. It is so close to Vase and Pen Wyn that one dive could encompass both sites. This amazing pinnacle is joined to PenWyn by a ridge, otherwise it stands alone.
