Scuba diving

Super shore dive. A bit of a trek to enter but once in the water nice calm sea. You finish off the dive coming back through an underwater arch into a small pool.

It is a really beautiful sight in any season. Do walk along the shore to the other bay and observe the fossils. There's also a tower which is open to the public.

Saw this among other sights using the Gozo city sight seeing Malta bus, that stops at many locations,but another bus is within an hour to continue the tour route. Well worth it at €20 for adults & €12 for children (5-14) 1 day ticket

It has been over 20 years since I visited the famous Blue Hole in Gozo. It was a beautiful day when I visited last week but the ideal time to visit is when the waves are crashing against the rocks causing plumes of water spouting upward. This is Mother nature at her best!

The water is super clear and if I had time to dive it looks like a nice spot. I think the wee boat tour is worth the few euros to see the azure water and scenic caves. Do the trip if you are here anyway. It was fun and good for a few selfie shots!

This is a great dive site and when you visit you will see lots of divers going in and out of the water. The water is crystal clear and the visibility seems to go on forever. The arch has been caused by nature and its amazing to see what mother nature can do. Its easy to visit if you do... More
