The Blue Hole is one of the most beautiful dive spots in the Maltese Islands. The entry point alone, where the famous Azure Window once stood, is unique. The Azure Window unfortunately collapsed on March 8, 2017. Your dive takes place between rock formations, eroded by wind and water with steep walls, which provide access to the open sea. Particularly striking are the impressive arch, which begins at a depth of 8 meters, the huge 15-meter deep cave at the bottom and the vertical tunnel or the Chimney. The Chimney is reached via the left reef. It lies at a depth of 18 meters and eventually leads you to the Coral Gardens at a depth of 4 meters, where you can leave the water at the end of your dive.

Particulars

The Blue Hole can only be reached via long path, but according to many this is one of the most beautiful dive sites in Europe. Fascinating are the deep blue hues of the water and the entry point. The hole, where you enter the water, has a size of 10 by 5 meters.

Warnings

The Blue Hole is a very popular location. It's worth it to dive the Blue Hole early in the day. Long and difficult walk to the entry point.
