1.Malta, Gozo and Comino

This full-day cruise is your gateway to a bite-sized version of the three islands Malta, Gozo and Comino.

Visiting the three islands is a definite must if you’re here for a short period, but still want to experience as much as it is physically possible.

2. Valletta and The Three Cities

Visiting Valletta and the Three Cities of Vittoriosa, Senglea and Cospicua is always an unforgettable experience – more so if you have the opportunity to explore this area’s world-renown harbours. Valletta’s Grand Harbour is one that has been shaped by natural forces as well as mankind, transforming it into the picturesque port that it is today. Vittoriosa, Senglea and Cospicua are just a boat ride away from the capital and enable you to experience the quaint village lifestyle for a little while.

3. Gozo, Comino & Blue Lagoon

The northern part of the islands is nothing short of spectacular. Malta’s sister islands – Gozo and Comino – are known for their natural beauty and stunning beaches. Comino is home to the famous Blue Lagoon, a marine paradise characterised by azure waters and cryptic caves.

The Island of Calypso – Gozo – features some of the Mediterranean’s top diving, snorkelling and swimming spots, as well as a microculture of its own.

4. Blue Grotto

The Blue Grotto is the name given to a series of spectacular sea caverns situated on the south-eastern coast. This site attracts more than 10,000 visitors every year, and it’s easy to see why. The central, 30m high arch guards the complex’s crystal clear waters – that’s 30m in height – accompanied by six other caves that mesmerise locals and foreigners alike. Additionally, the cave walls mirror the luminous colours of the underwater flora and fauna, resulting in some very psychedelic visuals.
