Malta: Blue Lagoon, Beaches & Bays Trip by Catamaran

Malta: Blue Lagoon, Beaches & Bays Trip by Catamaran

We will stop in 2-3 different locations. The first stop will be the Blue Lagoon. The boat will drop anchor away from the crowds so that you can experience the famous turquoise water peacefully. The stops after the Blue Lagoon depend on the weather/sea conditions. A few of our possible stops are: 1. Crystal Lagoon, surrounded by steep, dramatic cliffs. Its crystal clear waters are much deeper than the Blue Lagoon, making the area fantastic for snorkelling and swimming in and around the caves. During this stop, you can enjoy an optional barbecue. 2. Anchor Bay to view the film set of Popeye’s Village, tucked away in a charming bay. Other stops that could be made include Mellieha Bay, Golden Bay, GHajn Tuffieha Bay, Ramla Bay, Imgiebah Bay, or Half Rock. All of these locations are great for snorkelling and swimming. Back on the boat, listen to dance music, and buy cocktails at the bar. If you have selected the afternoon option, relax and watch the sunset on the horizon. After a wonderful day at sea, begin the journey back to Bugibba.

Great day out. We loved that when we were at the blue lagoon we could go back and chill out on the boat to get out of the sun if needed. All the facilities were great but I would recommend arriving early to board the boat to get a good seat. We would also highly recommend purchasing the speedboat trip when you arrive at blue lagoon- the guide was brilliant and good fun. Overall great experience

Absolutely a wonderful way to spend a day in Malta. The ferry ride is very nice, albeit a bit cramped, drinks and food are served on board but I only tried a drink which was good. Taken to fun locations given opportunities to swim in wonderful water. Highly recommend!

It was a great experience and we are happy for our choice. The crew was helpful and we visited beautiful places. We would recommend this choice for people who want to relax, swim and see beautiful swim spots of Malta and Islands.

Wonderful day I recommend this activity. The super nice team, good navigation, it was sublime!!! The turquoise water is amazing 😍

Very good if you want good places wake up early only thing is packed but it’s very funny and the workers 10/10
