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

320 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.

This was top of my list and so pleased we were able to do the tour. Fascinating history as it dates back to 2500 BC and for those spiritually inclined the Oracle Chamber.

This is a scam. 35 euro entry fee per person and for that money you are not even allowed to take a picture. Absolutely a no-go.

This is an interesting 50-min tour of an underground burial site, however it is not worth the extortionate price. Additionally, unless you book months in advance you will not get in as only ten people are allowed in per hour to protect the fragile environment. You have to leave all your belongings in a locker and are not allowed to take photos.

The Hypogeum is definitively THE site you have to see when on Malta. It is very touching to see all the efforts our ancestors made to purvey the dead with a kind of nekropolis where the deceased can rest. All structures are hewn or rather carved out of the stone. Be aware that you‘ll have to book your visit well beforehand.

The actual hypogeum is awesome, but they make feel 5000 years of anthropological history like an overpriced cantina tour, dropping grotesque assumptions as informations and repeating them to make them stick. Best to watch a video until they actually feel like giving a decent descriptive tour. Ps- impossible to book online where the price was 35€, “lucky” to have gotten 2 “last minute” tickets for 40€ each: spent as much as the flight to get to Malta for a 50 minutes “tour”.
