Malta Sights

Blue Lagoon

Fodor's Review

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
