Beautiful spots to look out for include Attard, Bugibba, Cirkewwa, Marsascala, Mdina, Mellieha, Salina, Sliema, St. Julians, Qawra and of course Valletta (in Malta), and Marsalforn, Mgarr, San Lawrenz, Sannat, Victoria (Gozo’s Capital), Xaghra and Xlendi (on Gozo).
Malta boasts around 30 main shore dives and 20 boat dives, Gozo weighs in with about 20 of each and little Comino has 10 or 11 excellent sites on offer. From an inland “sea” at Dwerja (including dive boats to the Blue Hole and Azure Window), to Comino’s Crystal Lagoon, to the wreck of the Um el Faroud the variety of diving is spectacular.
Our guests learning to dive or continuing their education will find a haven in many of the less trafficked bays while photographers will feast on the dramatic archways and tunnels – including Marsalforn’s Double Arch. Wreck buffs will love their options - including the famed tugboat Rozi, the HMS Maori (known for its role in sinking the German battleship Bismarck in 1941) and several others at technical diving depths. But, divers looking for natural beauty will find it on reefs like Reqqa Point, which has walls, caves and reef life. All in all, Malta truly has something for all divers – including a welcome as warm as the Maltese sun.
