Comino Island is a tiny island between Malta and Gozo that is accessible from both islands. From the port of Mgarr (Gozo) and from Cirkewwa (Malta) there are many fast boats that will come out to Comino for about 15 euros roundtrip. There you will find this island with clear water. Try to avoid going on the weekend because there are so many tourists there you will feel packed in and overwhelmed.
"The Blue Window" is a rock formation found on the neighboring island of Gozo. It is majestic and awesome and incredibly tall. The only thing is that it has suffered centuries of erosion from water and wind. It´s incredible from far away and up close.
Comino is an island on the Matlese archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea. It's between the islands of Malta and Gozo and is only 3.5 square kilometers. We spent a few weeks in Malta so we decided to head to Comino (and the afternoon in the Azure Window of Gozo, a place I also shared on minube). The first thing I though when I arrived at the Blue Lagoon was "wow, it's like a giant swimming pool," with the crystalline water and people with their inner tubes. We took along some snorkels to explore the depths. We went to the other side and found and underwater cave which you can see in the photo. At first, it was a bit dark and scary but it's the purest you can find in the Mediterranean. It was like being in a swimming pool!
To the southwest of the island of Malta is the Blue Grotto, amazing caves in the cliffs. An access to a pier just outside Qrendi, is marked and is not hard to find. There are some boats going through the caves. It costs around 8 € to take a tour on one of these boats. The journey is great, plus you can see sea cliffs from accessing a set of caves where light is filtered and generates a gorgeous blue, hence the name. There are many divers and people who are climbing the cliffs. Malta is an island with few beaches so it is best to focus tourism on the natural environments. Around the pier there are many gift shops and restaurants but I decided to go to Marsaxlokk Bay.
Mdina was Malta's capital until the construction of Valletta. Also known as Citta Vecchia, it is walled on a hill, which makes it impossible to enter. Its origins date back to the year 700 BC. It was a city with lovely architecture and not many inhabitants, abounds in fine palatial buildings, religious and former Maltese nobility. It is also known as the city of Silence. Not only does it have inner beauty, from walls and other items, including the terrace of Café La Fontanella, you can see a big picture of the island of Malta.
There are few beaches in Malta that have such fine sand. An original way to replace this is to use the natural resources which are available on the island. Being an island with an important limestone base, the rock formations are a sight even on the banks. You can go for a lovely swim in these clean and blue Maltese waters, and you can explore these curious pools. In the evening there is a lovely color.
Dingli is a small town at the end of Malta. The cliffs rise so impressively over the Mediterranean Sea, at about 253 meters high, they the highest point in Malta. The area provides views of the open sea with the small, uninhabited island of Filfla. They say the name of 'Dingli' was probably derived from the surname of some Maltese family owns the land. Archaeologists believe that the town existed all the way back to the time of the Phoenicians and Carthaginians. We read that there were no buses to take us there, so we decided to walk. Once we arrived, we saw the bus going to the stop (is the # 81? Can not remember). If you visit the city of Rabat, you can get to the cliffs easily as they are only 2 km away.
It is in a bay northwest of Malta with blue waters and filled with a variety of animals and plants. It is set in a theme park and was used in the film Popeye in 1980. The streets, the houses, everything is decorated in detail and is open to the public. I recommend if you are visiting Malta that you pass by this beautiful place.
Situated on the Mediterranean Sea, we found ourselves in Sliema on the coastal road that connects with St.Julians. This is probably one of the liveliest holiday resorts in Malta, and the center of the origins of many of the large hotels there. It is a very lively area centering around the shops, cafes and restaurants. The Sliema promontory offers one of the most beautiful views of the capital,Valletta, and Marsamxett Harbour.
Let me qualify Paceville, as one of the most popular rooms of Malta as a historical monument. It is an Ibiza-style nightclub that is very fashionable and the best in Malta for young people. There are tons of parties in Malta and it is full of Spanish people, especially in the summer because they come to study English.
Without a doubt, the first thing that you come here to see is the pier. It is small, colorful, cute and old-smelling, it is a little surprise that the town has saved. It is a little natural harbor, turquoise water, decorated with great affection and with great taste by its inhabitants. The vast majority of these have either their own boat or a small fishing boat. All their boats are lovingly cared for, which is ultimately reflected in the form of this beautiful dock ....
Golden Bay is one of the few sandy beaches on the island of Malta. We arrived not knowing where we were going, so upon arrival I took my girlfriend kayaking as she had ever tried it before. Needless to say she loved it. Kayaking was a great way to escape the crowds. On the way back we found a wonderful sunset and a sea that was a real lake. The sun sets early and it was fantastic, really beautiful!
The Grand Harbour in Valletta in Malta, is described as one of the most beautiful in the world! It has been used as a harbor since Roman times. This is one of the most beautiful views of Malta and it is crowded both day and night. Do not hesitate to come and have a visit.
St. Julian's Bay is one of the most beautiful places in Malta. You can walk along the beautiful and very well kept promenade that goes around it. Its azure waters bathe the St. Julian, a beautiful place that's classy and busy. Malta has a distinct air of the sea when you walk through its little streets. Everything you see you'll like. It's a little place with lot of charm. There's an area with a lot of bars, restaurants and beach bars. It's interesting by the day or night. You won't stop taking pictures throughout the day.
This is a beautiful fishing village in the southeastern part of Malta and it is a nice walk to the nearest beaches. If you do not mind walking, and you dare to walk the Maltese roads, you can get here in two hours from La Valletta (we know because had to walk after the motor burned out on our bus, not the strangest thing that's ever happened on these buses. In short, a must if you spend over three days in Malta.
From the stronghold of St. Elmo, you can beautiful views of the bay. Once there, and after seeing the giant bell in the temple, take the street of Saint Paul, to visit other buildings that hosted foreign delegations of the Order of the Knights of Malta. It is quite a walk through history on this island that is truly a melting pot.
The truth is that to walk and wander through the capital is one great pleasure. Steep streets, balconies with hanging laundry, stairs, cats, closed balconies, doors and other features motivates you to keep moving. Also see the city's ancient walls of protection, real works of engineering genius, small springs and savor the history of this charming capital. I did not care who joined me, I just loved getting lost in the smell of the bakeries in the morning and chats with the elders to who love to share the history of Malta.
