The Blue Hole is one of the most beautiful dive sites of the Maltese islands. The entrance and exit area, just below where the famous Azure Window used to be, is unique. You dive in a wind and water eroded rock formation with steep walls, which provides access to the open sea. Highlights include the imposing arc, which begins at 8 meters deep, and the huge 15 meter deep cave at the bottom. Following the left reef and the swimthrough vertical tunnel at 18 meters depth, called The Chimney, that will lead you to Coral Gardens at 4 meters where you can eventually exit the water.

Particulars

Very popular location. Can be very busy. Go early in the morning. According to many this is one of the best dive sites in Europe. Fascinating are the deep blue hues of the water. The hole where you enter the water, has a size of 10 by 5 meters. The Azure Window has collpased on 8 March 2017.

Warnings

Long walk and difficult path to the entrance point!
