Malta: Comino, Blue Lagoon & Caves Boat Cruise

1. Malta: Comino, Blue Lagoon & Caves Boat Cruise

Depart from the Bugibba Jetty and begin your cruise along the northern coast of Malta. Pass by all of the sights including St. Pauls Islands and the statue of St. Pauls, and Ahrax Point.   Continue cruising through the north channel of Comino as you pass by the elephants head, Santa Maria Bay, St. Nicholas Bay, and the Comino hotel. Make quick stops to enter both Ahrax Cave and Santa Maria Cave. Throughout the journey, Captain Kevin will inform you about the sites and give you information regarding Malta. After approximately 1 hour, arrive on Comino island in the famous Blue Lagoon. The boat will moor up and you can enjoy a stop of 4.5 hours. During the journey, feel free to use all the facilities on board the boat or get off and explore the island. Relax and sunbathe on the top deck or find some shade on the main deck. Take a refreshing plunge into the cool, crystal-clear water. Take advantage of male and female toilet facilities, lockers, and the cafeteria which serves hot and cold beverages.  At the end of your time in Comino, head off to the island of Gozo without stopping. Cruise around the Mgarr Harbour and see more important sites from the boat. Return to Malta via the south channel of Comino, passing by Crystal Lagoon and its caves and St. Mary's tower.

St. Paul's Bay: Coast, Coves, and Caves Boating Tour

2. St. Paul's Bay: Coast, Coves, and Caves Boating Tour

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.

What people are saying about Mellieha

Really great, Hornblower is probably the best deal on this place. In any case, everything went well; compared to the other boats, we had a larger lagoon area for us and the best slide. Bring a mask and snorkel or at worst buy it in the boat (20 €) to watch the fish, which are not extraordinary but pretty and varied by 3m deep, it allows you to spend the 4.5 hours pleasantly once you have made 10 dives and 10 slides. The only downside to which Hornblower can do nothing: on the island, a smart guy sells pineapples with liqueur in the fruit. We found empty pineapples all over the rocks with the straws, it was ugly. If I was mayor of the island, I'd fire that salesman or have him pick up his customers' trash.

Une vraie jolie petite croisière … bon temps à nager dans le lagon. On a vu les belles grottes , de bonnes informations données . Je recommande cette croisière à Comino lagon bleu
