Diving in Malta is an all year round sport, and this is possible because of the great weather. The Mediterranean waters surrounding the Maltese islands are some of the cleanest and clearest seas you will ever see. There are intriguing caves and a variety of natural and artificial reefs. Diving in Malta is a must.
Diving in Malta is a unique experience. The water around the rocky islands offer a clarity and calmness that is almost nowhere else found. Scuba diving is especially very popular as it can be practiced almost all year round. The different areas around the island offer challenges to beginner divers, as well as the most experienced ones: from the 12-metre Għar Lapsi dive to the 50-metre deep underwater tunnels. Apart from this, the sun and the warm water make a diving experience the ultimate experience.
Popular diving spots in Malta
Malta has a lot of popular diving spots. But don’t forget about Malta’s beautiful sister island: Gozo.
