‘Water, water everywhere – and not a drop to drink’, wrote Samuel Taylor Coleridge in his famous poem, ‘The Rime of the Ancient Mariner’. Well, the sea in Malta might not be potable, but it sure is great for scuba diving.
We’ve spoken about exploring Malta on land. We’ve written about connecting with Malta’s beauty on cliffy heights. We’ve noted that there are many ways to appreciate the archipelago while in the sea. Malta is truly beautiful from all angles – but what happens when we go for an even deeper angle, namely under the sea?
In fact, you might not be surprised to learn that Malta is consistently rated as being one of the top destinations worldwide for scuba diving. It’s more than the fact that there’s sea all around us. Malta is full of intriguing dive sites because of the abundance of caves and reefs that make for gorgeous natural structures below the sea. Just as captivating are the myriad historical wrecks that you can observe first hand when scuba diving.
In addition to the beauty and intriguing stuff that lies under the depths of Malta’s seas, scuba diving in Malta is also an excellent choice because the variety in diving sites makes it suitable for all kinds of divers from absolute beginners to professionals. In fact, there are numerous sheltered and shallow bays that even the most inexperienced of divers can feel safe in.
