St Peter’s Pool, Malta

best beaches in Malta

St. Peter’s Pool is one of the most remarkable natural swimming pools in Malta and is located close to Marsaxlokk, at the South-Easterly tip of the island.

The sea at St. Peters Pool is entirely translucent with an array of spectacular green and blue tones. The large pool also offers excellent snorkelling opportunities with an abundance of marine life to enjoy. The flat rocks around St Peter’s Pool provide perfect sunbathing areas, and the surrounding imposing cliffs offer shade from the strong Maltese sun.

Ladders are available to be able to descend to take a dip the sea and the more adventurous bathers have the choice of diving into the waters from a few metres along the shore.

Blue Lagoon, Comino

best beaches in Malta

With its Caribbean-like sparkly waters and isolated island location, Blue Lagoon is ultimately the most visually impressive beach on the Maltese Isles. The lagoon is situated on the smallest sister island of Comino, which only has five permanent residents! 

The beautiful Blue Lagoon is the most popular tourist destination on the tiny island and consequently can get very busy during the peak months. It’s here you can perfect your classic ‘’drinking from a pineapple’’ photo! Should you decide to enter the water, make sure, you keep to the right side of the rope as the lagoon is very popular for tour boats and private yachts.

Directly opposite Comino’s Blue Lagoon sits the bay of Armier in Malta. The bay is divided into two bays, with the smaller one known as Little Armier. The bay provides a wonderous tranquil spot to enjoy clear waters, mirroring those at the Blue Lagoon. The area is also far from huge developments and offers a scenic picnic destination, surrounded by traditional Maltese boathouses.

Dwejra Bay, Gozo

best beaches in Malta

Once home to the famous Azure Window, Dwejra Bay in Gozo is an idyllic small bay, with naturally formed pools created by erosion of the rocks. There are also some incredible cave diving sites in the area such as the “Blue Hole’’- truly perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving. 

There are even more fantastic clear water bays to discover locally, each offering something uniquely spectacular. So book your direct flights to Malta today and get ready to hunt for the summer paradise of your dreams!
