In just one week, we managed to squeeze in all of the islands’ top sights. Granted, we wouldn’t have seen all we wanted to hadn’t we ditched the buses for a more efficient means of transport—our rental car. But that move was certainly worth our while.
Here are Malta’s jaw-dropping attractions that should definitely be on your bucket list.
Blue LagoonThis spot of paradise lies bang in the middle of the Malta-Gozo channel. By far one of Malta’s most instagrammable spots, the blue lagoon really is stunning with its aquamarine waters contrasting against the dramatic rock backdrops. The lagoon’s sandy bottom can tempt even the most trepid swimmer.
Beware though, this beauty spot attracts masses during the peak summer months. So your best bet on finding a spot on the little bit of sand available is to arrive as early in the morning as possible. The lagoon itself is pretty spacious though, so you should be able to feel more comfortable in the water than on land. Are you the more adventurous type? Then use this as an opportunity to leave the crowds behind and explore the numerous caves. You may even be tempted to swim through the cave tunnel that leads from the lagoon to the open sea. Don’t forget to take your snorkel with you!
Oh! And how to get here? Catch the ferry boat transfer from Sliema or Ċirkewwa.
