Gozo and Comino Islands: including Blue Lagoon, Crystal Lagoon & caves

335 reviews
Get away from the main island of Malta in search of sea and sunshine on this tour from Bugibba. Visit the Crystal Lagoon (if traveling in June-October), followed by the Blue Lagoon on Comino for swimming and snorkeling. From here, continue to Gozo Island, where you have the choice of enjoying free time at your leisure or taking a tour of the island's historic sites before cruising back to Bugibba via the Santa Maria pirate caves.

It’s almost a hidden secret. And it’s certainly a gem. An hour or so spent here is a delight. The place has recently been refurbished and is run by volunteers from no less than 6 nationalities led by an Italian, Paolo. Not only is the history fascinating, the place delightful and the ambiance fitting, it also has great unencumbered views across to Sliema, Manoel Island and Ta’ Xbiex. Not so easy to find but if you head towards the Phoenicia Hotel and walk down towards the Excelsior it’s on the road to the left in front of the Excelsior. HOT TIP ..... if arriving by car try to get there at lunchtime. The parking available is almost entirely taken up by Government office workers but at lunchtime many spaces clear. This is a really good short visit.

Have visited on a few occasions, this has got to be one of my favorite locations on the Island, 1st and foremost it is a cemetery but also a very beautiful garden which sits atop one of the bastions over looking the bay, just a complete joy to sit and watch the world go by, love it....

This garden is laid in the confines of what was an Anglican Cemetery in the early 1800s related to military and naval activities by the British. The cemetery is now not in use but forms a very important link in the British History of Malta, when Malta was a very important stopping point, as well as being the 'Nurse-maid of the Mediterranean'. The gardens themselves are extremely well kept by volunteers and tours are given by Paolo who has almost encyclopaedic knowledge of the events surrounding the garden. The gardens are a haven of peace and beauty, just outside, and within walking distance (hilly) from, the busy city of Valletta and neighbouring Floriana. I, personally, was introduced to it by a friend about six months ago and have been back again to lap up the peace, the beauty and the history. I will visit again and take the tour again that Paolo runs. Information abounds. Apart from all the World War II haunts in Malta, these Gardens are a throwback to a much earlier time in British Military (and Maltese) History. The National Geographic Magazine had commented that these Gardens and Cemetery are "one of the five most beautiful cemeteries in the world" - well with a visit; entrance fee (2019) at only €2 for approx one hour of peace, quiet, beauty and priceless information.

The place is very well kept and a lot of time was spent on researching on the place. Paolo the one who guides the tour is very well versed on history and the volunteers are very welcoming. A must visit.
