The Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon, white sand and crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean 

The Blue Lagoon is located in Comino and is like a picture taken out of a postcard with its light blue crystal clear waters and white sandy sea bottom. The uniquely beautiful Blue Lagoon has two small sandy beaches on each sides of the bay, the rest of the bay is surrounded by rock to sunbathe on and jump into the water from.

The Blue Lagoon in Malta is prized for its shallow waters and is a very popular place with tourists and locals alike. Due to the lagoon’s incredible waters, colourful fish and even several caves to explore, snorkelling is the obvious choice here. Only bathers are allowed in the lagoon as it is sealed off to prevent any boats from disturbing the lagoon’s clear water. If you want a place on one of the small sandy beaches, arriving early in the morning is recommended as it gets very busy during the day.

Comino and The Blue Lagoon are also well worth a visit in winter for lovely walks and beautiful photographs. Just one look at the crystal clear waters in the Blue Lagoon makes you feel like you are in another continent and this magnificent and beautiful bay is highly recommended as a stop on your holiday in Malta.

Getting to the Blue Lagoon:

Catch Bus 11, 41, or X1 heading to Cirkewwa and ask the driver to drop you at the stop for the Comino ferry that departs from Marfa. Once you get off the bus, you have a 2 min walk to the pier, which is right opposite the Riviera hotel. Once there, take a small water taxi for €10 return. You can also take one of the small ferries just by the Gozo ferries, then stop at the last bus stop. Larger tourist vessels depart from Sliema Strand and Bugibba and go directly to the Blue Lagoon. You could also rent a boat if you would like to explore all Comino and not just the bay.
