Fly Calypso I Sing To Your Spirit! Review with images

AdvantagesThe friendly locals

DisadvantagesThe wind!

"...pint, having to pay Air Malta upwards of £200 for a return flight to Malta makes a big difference to your holiday budget. It is possible to get cheaper flights, but they are invariably from Gatwick, in the middle of the night. As I am based in Scotland I had to pay the extra to get down to Gatwick. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Getting to Gozo It's also necessary to remember that once you get to Malta ..."

Taking the Plunge in Gozo

AdvantagesA great place to learn

DisadvantagesNot such a great place to go back to

"...smaller next door neighbour of Malta and typically visited by folk taking a break in Malta who fancy a day out. It lies between the heel of Italy and the Tunisian coast. But what those people bouncing around the island in four by fours don't realise is that Gozo is also a great place to learn to dive. I'm not necessarily going to say it's a great place to dive - more of that later - but it's great for learning. Background ********** I first ..." Read review

Blue water, sun - and brilliant diving! Review with images

AdvantagesFairly warm, easy to get around, plenty of wrecks

DisadvantagesLots of deep sites - make sure you're qualified!

"...is whether to stay on Malta or Gozo (there's also the option of staying on Comino, the smallest island - though it only has one hotel). I actually got round that by staying a few days on each of the 2 bigger islands. While Malta has a large number of resorts with plenty of restaurants and clubs, Gozo tends to be much quieter - not to say that there aren't quiet areas on Malta. But I'll mainly focus on the diving. Malta isn't the place to go to ..." Read review

Watch out for the Bomb

AdvantagesBeing an island there's almost always a dive available whatever the weather.

DisadvantagesVery heavily dived and not enough attention to conservation.

"My most memorable dive in Malta was when I mistook a 500 lb bomb for a water jug. I was only a novice then, back in 1982 and this was my fourth qualifying dive. I was doing escorted dives with Divewise Services (of St Georges Bay) and on this hot summer morning we were heading for the wreck of the HMS Maori (a world war two destroyer) which was sunk by the German air force in Marsamxett Harbour, little more than 50m from the Valetta shoreline. En ..." Read review

First and Best

AdvantagesAbsolutely fantastic


"I was only in Malta a few years ago. The island itself is beautiful. I had been going on holiday their since i was five and i had fallen in love with the place. My dad Had been interested in diving for years and he suggested that we should go diving now i was old enough. The first time breathing artificially is absolutely fantastic and the dive site was even better. The sea was fantastic and not a bit cold. Going down deeper into the sea my eas began ..."
