Why Malta & Gozo Are Unparalleled Diving Destinations

Looking for the best diving holiday? Malta & Gozo are real-life treasure islands packed with adventure and rich with history.

Why Go On Diving Holiday In Malta and Gozo?

Malta and Gozo are part of the archipelago in the Mediterranean, in the South of Italy, on either side of the Comino – home of the  Blue Lagoon, said to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Malta. The waters surrounding these islands are a diver’s dream – typically calm, crystal clear with an abundance of underwater life and seascape to explore, and mysterious wrecks that have a story to tell.


Malta has a population of 502,600 and is about 27km long and 14.5 km wide –  famous for its World Heritage site like the vintage City of Valletta and historic wreck Dives, such as the Le Polynesian, one of Malta’s most historic wrecks, was a 6,373-ton French liner, sunk on August 10, 1918, towards the end of World War I, killing 10.


Gozo measures only 14 km by 7 km and has a population of about 30,000 –  famous for dive spots like the ‘Blue Hole’’ , and only a 25-minute ferry ride from the main island of Malta.


Although Comino is largely known as ‘uninhabited’ it actually has two residents. The main dive attraction of the Cominos is the Patrol boat P31 wreck – former patrol boat for the Maritime Squadron of the Armed Forces of Malta.
