Full description
Within minutes of departing, discover the picturesque fishing village of Xemxija and the white sandy beach of Mistra Bay. Following that, pass by St. Paul’s Island, where the apostle who brought Christianity to Europe was ship wrecked. As you head up the coast, discover the wild rugged coastline of the northern coast, with its many beautiful bays, cliffs, coves, and caves. Your first 15-minute swimming break is to the secluded Imgiebah Bay, which has managed to keep its wild beauty thanks to its inaccessibility. As you continue along the coast, pass by Malta’s biggest sandy beach: Mellieha Bay. The next stop is another hidden hard-to-access gem: the Coral Lagoon. This area is a naturally formed roofless cave with crystal clear turquoise waters. Following the lagoon, head to the Island of Comino where you stop at the Santa Maria Caves, known locally as the Pirate Caves. This is a fascinating cave system consisting of gulleys, caverns, tunnels, and caves. The area is well known as a snorkelers paradise in which you can expect to be mobbed by banded sea bream.

Petite embarcation, loin des bateaux immeubles, préféré par nous car plus calme, plus zen. Personnel (2) agréables, boissons fraîches à bord, 2 planches padel, tubas et masques à disposition. Trois arrêts dans les eaux limpides, le blue lagoon est très très fréquenté, c'est dommage...nous avons grossis le nombre de touristes étant sur place bien sûr ! Au cristal lagoon, nagez jusqu'au 2 criques, moment magique...belle découverte. Juste dommage que des personnes soient arrivées en retard, ce qui a raccourci un peu nos temps d'arrêts, sinon je conseille cette excursion . From Belgium...
