A natural inlet of languid azure waters sheltered by golden-hued rocky islets, this is one of the finest swimming, snorkelling and diving locations in the whole Mediterranean. A lack of sand and silt results in excellent water clarity and a good range of sea life means there's always something of interest even in the shallows.
Blue Lagoon is regularly used as a film location, most famously for the naval scenes in the Hollywood blockbuster Troy (2004) with
Brad Pitt. Today the area has become a must-visit day trip by boat from Malta and the numbers of visitors can overwhelm the site during peak season (July–August).
