  • St Paul's Bay: Blue Lagoon, Beaches & Bays Trip by Catamaran

    1. St Paul's Bay: Blue Lagoon, Beaches & Bays Trip by Catamaran

    After boarding the catamaran, the first stop will be the Blue Lagoon. The boat will drop anchor away from the crowds, so you can experience the famous turquoise water in peace. During this stop, you can enjoy an optional barbecue. The stops after the Blue Lagoon will depend on the weather. It might be possible to head to the Crystal Lagoon, surrounded by steep dramatic cliffs. Its crystal clear waters are much deeper than the Blue Lagoon, making the area fantastic for snorkeling and swimming in and around the caves. If there is an easterly wind, it’s likely that you’ll visit Ghajn Tuffieha. This is a beautiful rural area, home to a chain of pristine sandy beaches called Golden Bay, Riviera Beach, and Gnejna Bay.

    On the way back from Ghajn Tuffieha, an additional stop will be made to discover the film set of Popeye’s Village, tucked away in a charming bay. Other stops ...

  • Gozo Full-Day Sightseeing Tour of Malta's Sister Island

    2. Gozo Full-Day Sightseeing Tour of Malta's Sister Island

    Cross to the tiny island of Gozo to enjoy a 10-hour sightseeing tour of the sister island of Malta. Drive to Xlendi Bay, a popular beach and an ideal diving site. Tour the fishing village and harbor, where fishing vessels bob. Your next stop is the historic fortified city of The Citadella in the heart of Victoria. Also called The Citadel, it is on Malta's tentative list of future UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and contains an old prison within the city walls. Stop for a buffet lunch in Rabat, before seeing the Ta' Pinu Basilica, close to the village of Gharb. Finally, drive to Mgarr Port via Qala Belvedere, where breathtaking scenes await.

    Day started with a very easy pick up from the local hotel and then a very short ride north to the ferry. Crossing was seamless and second air-conditioned coach was there to pick up. Tour takes in all the major places to visit and we never felt rushed with plenty of time to take everything in. Local guide was excellent and very attentive to everyone’s needs. Lunch was very nice with both water and wine included. Trip back to hotel at the end of the day was also very easy with hotel drop offs well planned and timed. I would definitely recommend this excursion if you are only going to Goso for the day

    The tour was interesting. The guide was very nice. The only thing that bothered me a little was the difference between English and Russian. So much more information was given to English speakers and many things were forgotten to speak in Russian. One of our company did not speak English and we had to translate a lot ourselves.

new stylish boat (katamaran) with lots of sunbeds and seats (sun and shadow). friendly crew, nice drinks and cocktails for a fair price. BBQ (optional) was tasty & freshly prepared on board and a nice option after swimming.

A great and worthwhile excursion. Unfortunately the weather wasn't perfect. The places we drove to were great for swimming and snorkeling. The return trip was characterized by waves, which I thought was great.

Very enjoyable trip! Places we stopped for swimming and snorkelling were lovely. Plenty of fish to look at underwater! :) Friendly staff and a nice new boat - clean and comfortable.

Great tour!! Takes you to all the well known swimming spots. Definitely get the add on barbecue as you will get very hungry.

Brilliant day out. Enough time in each spot and lovely BBQ. Make sure you get there early to get a good spot.
